FM Liberman announces the opening of an Israeli embassy in Lithuania Featured

​The embassy, due to open in January 2015, is an expression of the significant strengthening of the bilateral relationship in recent years and its contribution to both peoples.


Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman, currently on an official visit to Lithuania, met in Vilnius with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite, Prime Minister Algridas Butkevicius and Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius.
At his meeting with FM Linkevicius, FM Liberman announced the opening of an Israeli embassy in Vilnius as of January 2015. FM Liberman stated that relations between Israel and Lithuania have strengthened in recent years, a fact that has been expressed in many areas. These include the inauguration of a Tel Aviv-Vilnius airline route, a substantial increase in tourism, the development and strengthening of economic and business ties between the two countries in the fields of high-tech, technology and medicine and the relationship between the two nations. 150 representatives from 60 Israeli companies are participating in The Life Sciences Baltics conference currently being held in Lithuania, and next week an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the destruction of the Kovno Ghetto will be held in Vilnius with the participation of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta.
FM Liberman thanked his hosts on Lithuania's fair position during Operation Protective Edge and for the backing given to Israel in the Security Council during the operation. FM Liberman stated that this meant that the Security Council did not issue a condemnation against Israel, despite pressure from certain countries, thus allowing the IDF to continue its operation against terror.
FM Liberman added that Israel and Lithuania will continue to reinforce and strengthen the relationship that contributes to both peoples and both countries.
