President Dalia Grybauskaitė

Message of congratulations to President Sauli Niinistö of Finland on national day


Dear Mr. President,

On behalf of the Lithuanian people and on my own behalf, I extend sincere congratulations on the occasion of the 98th anniversary of Finland’s Independence. I wish you and the people of Finland continued success, security and prosperity.

For many years now, Finland has been a close ally of Lithuania at bilateral level as well as in the Baltic Sea region and in the European Union. The common values and goals we share and good mutual understanding ensure that we work together to defend robustly the strategic interests of our countries and people in the areas of security, energy and economy. Close political dialogue between the two countries is deepened and reinforced by the joint initiatives launched by our citizens in trade, culture, science, and education. I am confident that close and friendly people-to-people contacts will continue to serve as a basis for a strong friendship between our two countries, contributing to the security, prosperity and unity of the whole of the continent.

May I again congratulate you and the people of Finland on your national holiday and wish you all a happy celebration. Please accept, Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania
