Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak started his visit to Vilnius on Wednesday, where he plans to meet with Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda and Lithuanian Defence Minister Raimundas Karoblis.
Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda on Tuesday announced that he would not attend the January 23 World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem, but would come to Poland for January 27 observations of the 75th liberation anniversary of the Nazi-German Auschwitz death camp.
The current visit by the Lithuanian president is an important sign of friendship for us, Polish President Andrzej Duda said during a joint press conference after meeting with Gitanas Nauseda, the newly elected President of Lithuania.
Gitanas Nauseda, sworn in as Lithuania's president on Friday, is to pay an official visit to Warsaw with his wife, Diana Nausediene, on Tuesday. It will be the new presidential couple's first foreign visit.
