European Integration Committee Chairman Meets with Newly-Appointed Lithuanian Ambassador
The Chairman of the European Integration Committee, Aleksandar Senic, met with the newly-appointed Lithuanian Ambassador, H.E. Rasa Kairiene. The officials discussed Serbia’s Euro-integration process, public support and understanding of the accession process, as well as the relationship between Serbia and Russia.
The officials concluded that fostering ties between the institutions and the citizens of Lithuania and Serbia is a common goal both countries should pursue. That would, they agreed, improve Serbia’s negotiations process. The Lithuanian Ambassador said that her country had relatively recently traversed the path Serbia is currently on: “Our experiences are fresh and we want to share them with you”, said Kairiene.
Kairiene suggested that the two countries could promote cooperation and relations through interparliamentary cooperation and student exchange programmes, and Senic concluded that they should put effort into bringing the two nations closer together since we will all one day be one big family under the auspices of the European Union.
