Tuesday, November 3, Vilnius – President Dalia Grybauskaitė is travelling to Romania on a working visit tomorrow, November 4, where she will attend the Central European Summit.

The meeting will bring together the Presidents of Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania, the Speaker of the Czech Parliament and the NATO Deputy Secretary General, Alexander Vershbow.

The top issues on the agenda include preparations for the upcoming NATO Summit to be held in July 2016 in Warsaw, the threats facing countries in the region, the implementation of the Wales agreements, and the Alliance’s further defense and deterrence steps to ensure the security of Central European countries.

The President pointed out that the unpredictable neighborhood, which is being militarized at a rapid pace, further escalation of the conflict in Syria, and deepening hostility between Russia and the West demanded new security and deterrence measures.

A joint political declaration between the leaders of nine NATO member states is expected to be issued after the meeting.

The leaders of the nine states meet on a regular basis to discuss the most important security issues in the region. The previous such meeting was held in summer 2014 in Warsaw ahead of the Wales Summit.
