      On April 3, Lithuania’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gabrielius Landsbergis, attended the NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs meeting in Brussels.

      “The Alliance must first agree on long-term support for Ukraine, its path to NATO, and a strategy to contain Russia,” the head of Lithuania’s diplomacy said at the meeting.

      NATO Foreign Ministers discussed preparations for the NATO summit in Washington, D.C., ways to institutionalize coordination of support to Ukraine, the threat posed by Russia, the challenges facing the Southern Neighbourhood and NATO’s cooperation with the Indo-Pacific region.

      The Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian Foreign Ministers also met with their German counterpart Annalena Baerbock. Foreign Ministers discussed strengthening defence and deterrence on the eastern flank of NATO and preparations for the summit in Washington, D.C.

      “The atmosphere of the meeting in Washington will be determined not only by our intentions or how we communicate about them but also by developments on the front, what will be agreed on the start of negotiations on Ukraine’s EU membership and other factors,” Landsbergis noted at the meeting.

      The NATO-Ukraine Council will be held tomorrow in Brussels, during which the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba will present the most urgent defensive needs.
       
      Landsbergis will also attend a Meeting of the Nordic-Baltic Eight (NB8) Foreign Ministers and NATO’s 75th anniversary celebration. The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was established in Washington, D.C., on April 4, 1949.
