Phot. BNS/Žygimantas Gedvila

Presidential candidate Gitanas Nausėda has presented his priorities in foreign policy.

Economist has declared that for the first visit he will go to Warsaw. ‘For the first visit I will go to Poland. Our plans about territorial defense will not have sense without cooperation with our southern neighbour. I would like our economic cooperation to be more dynamic (…) My negotiating position – I am for original spelling of surnames on the other sides of the passport’ – the candidate stated.

“When speaking about the Polish and North-European wing, I would like Lithuania to devote a lot of attention to both formats, because it is not contradictory. Perhaps when Brexit becomes a reality, Great Britain will join the North European format’ – the politician suggested.

Nausėda has stated that he is for the strengthening of NATO and for dialogue with Russia. At a given stage, collaboration with Russia is primarily to refer to economic and cultural matters.
