Grybauskaitė does not want ostentatious meetings with Poland
Dalia Grybauskaitė, RL’s president voices Her object towards any further ostentatious meetings withPoland-said Foreign Affairs advisor.
“We object any further ostentatious meetings withPoland. We always support working meetings that are on a higher level”- advisor Jovita Neliupšienė signalized.
Nevertheless, the advisor did not inform whether the president will attend a ceremony celebrating Polish Independence Day on 11th November.
Polish and Lithuanian relations have been rather indifferent lately due to the disputable matter of Polish minority inLithuania. In summer, last
Year, the president commented that it is better to have a break in relations rather than trying to fix something that cannot be fixed.
In president advisor’s opinion, Polish- Lithuanian relations have been quite intense lately and any help from politicians would be unnecessary.
Much attention has been given to power industry, commerce, tourism. If in all these matters a mutual understanding is reached, then any intervention from political people is unnecessary”- stressed Neliupšienė.
In the past five years, the president of Lithuaniahad always participated in the ceremony of Polish Independence Day. Also Polish presidents had always been on 16th February inVilnius.
