Friday, January 26, Davos-Klosters, Switzerland – President Dalia Grybauskaitė extended congratulations to President Shri Ram Nath Kovind of India on Republic Day.

As India celebrates the 68th Anniversary of Republic Day, the President expressed her strong wish that the ideals enshrined in the Constitution of India continue to be the guiding light for spreading the values of freedom and democracy, promoting human rights, well-being and security not only in India but also across the region - especially today when India increasingly more often assumes leadership on the global scene.

According to the President, today’s challenges and security threats call for strengthening the dialogue between the European Union and India as well as for developing responsible cooperation on urgent international issues. “I hope that in the coming years the ongoing successful political relationship between Lithuania and India will open new opportunities for our nations to expand mutually beneficial ties in trade, tourism, culture, research and innovation,” the President wrote in her message of congratulations.

Dalia Grybauskaitė wished the people of India continued peace, prosperity and success, as well as a happy celebration.
