VILNIUS, February 16 (Itar-Tass) — Lithuania and Poland will coordinate their stances on the implementation of NATO’s project to deploy a missile defence system in Europe.
The two countries’ leaders Dalia Grybauskaite and Bronislaw Komorowski reached the relevant agreement on Thursday.
The Polish leader arrived in Vilnius on the occasion of the Day of Restoration of Lithuania’s Independence.
According to the press service of the Lithuanian president, the two countries’ leaders agreed that Vilnius and Warsaw “will coordinate their positions on security policy and missile defence during their preparation for the NATO summit due in Chicago.”
Grybauskaite also proposed Poland to join Lithuania’s Energy Security Centre, which is designed to contribute to common energy security of NATO member-states and fulfillment of “smart defence” principles.
Vilnius seeks its centre to be included into the list of the North Atlantic Alliance’s facilities.
Moreover, Grybauskaite and Komorowski discussed bilateral cooperation and decided to provide high-level assistance to the implementation of projects to integrate the countries’ gas pipeline and electric power transmission networks.
At present, Lithuania’s electrical grids and gas networks are integrated only eastwards. The Baltic state makes preparations to unify its networks to those of Poland, which would give Lithuania an access to Western Europe.
