  The Presidents of the Baltic States discussed the Russian issue

2013 11 12

On 31 October Presidents of the Baltic States held an annual meeting in Birini castle in Latvia.

The Head of Latvia Andris Berzins stressed that this meeting will include talks of the leaders of the three countries on issues related with regional cooperation, including the need for closer integration of the economy, for developing joint projects in the sectors of energy and transport, for cooperation and specialization in science and education.

Discussing the issues of Eastern Partnership and the expected Vilnius summit in late November, the heads of states exchanged views on the "geopolitical nervousness" around the countries of Eastern Partnership. They have also discussed the status of Lithuania as the country of the EU Presidency in connection with the "pressure exerted on the Ukraine and other countries".

Speaking of the EU energy policy and its outward direction, Latvian President has particularly stressed that it is important for the EU to continue working on the diversification of energy supplies, specifically of natural gas - for improving energy security and competition on the energy market. In this context, Andris Berzins urged Lithuania to cooperate with Poland in particular: that in the coming years could mean the emergence of an alternative source of gas supply for Lithuanians, as a result of shale gas extraction in Poland.

It was decided during the meeting to get pipe connection with Poland, as well as to find some other sources "bypassing Russia".
