President Dalia Grybauskaitė

Message of congratulations to Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg on national day

2019-06-23

Your Royal Highness,

Please accept my sincere congratulations on Luxembourg’s National Day – the Official Birthday of the Grand Duke. I wish you, the Grand Ducal Family and the people of your country continued success and prosperity.

Comprehensive dialogue between Lithuania and Luxembourg has significantly intensified over the past 15 years since Lithuania became a member of the European Union and NATO. Both growing political ties between the states and the development of business and people-to-people contacts confirm this.

We highly value that Lithuania and Luxembourg share a similar approach to many of the most important issues on the European and security agenda. Your solidarity and support in contributing to the defense of our region, in particular, the decision to deploy troops in the NATO forward presence battalion in Lithuania, is a symbol of great responsibility but also of a sustainable friendship between our countries.

I have no doubt that active cooperation between Lithuania and Luxembourg will not lose the momentum in the future, and new opportunities opened for our citizens in the areas of business, innovation, science, education, and culture will contribute to strengthening the welfare of both countries and the entire continent.

Your Royal Highness, may I again offer my congratulations on your national day and wish a happy celebration to the people of Luxembourg.  Please accept, my best wishes and the assurances of my highest consideration.

Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania
