Mateusz Morawiecki emphasised that thanks to the increasingly more diversified sources of gas supply, Poland constitutes a stable area of gas and energy security in this part of Europe. We also support the energy security of the Baltic States by implementing projects in the field of energy or transport which important for the region, stressed the Prime Minister. Today’s discussions also concerned joint purchases in the field of defence, as well as investments in Poland and Lithuania, informed Mateusz Morawiecki.

The head of the government declared that Poland and Lithuania have maintained friendly relations for many years now and that they have a similar outlook on European issues, e.g. those related to the multiannual financial framework.

During his visit to Lithuania, the Prime Minister also attended the launch of TVP Wilno at the Polish Culture Centre. He said that the date of inauguration is symbolic, since on 17 September 80 years ago Poland definitely lost its independence in the aftermath of German and Soviet invasion. Thanks to the new channel, Poles living in Lithuania will be able to watch Polish television. TVP Wilno will be available in the Vilnius Region, in Švenčionys, Šalčininkai and Vilnius districts. The main aim of this project is to present the life of Poles in Lithuania, to promote positive image of Poland and to popularise the Polish language.

During today’s visit, the Prime Minister has also lain flowers on the graves of Polish soldiers fallen during the Soviet aggression buried at the Rasos Cemetery.
