PAST MEETINGS

March 12, 2017 International Parliamentary Meeting Europe and the United States: Reaffirming Transatlantic Solidarity On 12 March 2017, the Seimas hosted the international parliamentary meeting Europe and the United States: Reaffirming Transatlantic Solidarity. The objective of the meeting, which was co-organised by the Parliamentary Forum for Democracy, was to discuss the worrying global trends towards a decline of democracy, and new challenges and prospects for transatlantic cooperation. The international parliamentary meeting began with a welcome address by Prof. Viktoras Pranckietis, Speaker of the Seimas, who stressed that Lithuania was united in its self-resolve and believed in the future of the transatlantic relations in the face of new challenges to security and our values. The Speaker of the Seimas took note that all political groups in the Seimas saw eye to eye on Lithuania’s foreign and security policy. Therefore, right upon its election, the Seimas adopted resolutions confirming the consistency and continuity of Lithuania’s foreign, security and defence policy, its commitment to NATO, and its strategic partnership with the United States of America. It has already been agreed to increase our defence spending to reach 2 % of GDP by 2018 and to go even beyond that. The Speaker of the Seimas also noted that Lithuania was determined to give full support to Ukraine and other Eastern Partnership countries. more
