U.S. president Donald Trump believes that support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine helps to strengthen European security.
The American leader confirmed this in a letter addressed to the President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite. The letter was sent on the occasion of Lithuania’s Restoration of the State Day that is celebrated on February 16.
As stated in the document published by the U.S. Embassy in Vilnius, “Lithuania is a leader in the promotion of democracy and strengthening of the transatlantic community.”
“Your support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as your efforts to increase energy diversification, advance our shared goal of enhancing European and regional security,” said the U.S. president.
According to him, the United States are “proud to call Lithuania a friend and an ally.” Trump assured that the current U.S. government is set up to work with the Lithuanian authorities in order to achieve common goals.
