      On February 21, Lithuania’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gabrielius Landsbergis, met with his Nepalese counterpart, Narayan Prakash Saud, on the margins of the “Raisina Dialogue” security conference.

      The meeting focused on possibilities to develop bilateral relations between Lithuania and Nepal, especially in economics, education and culture, as well as the need for continued support to Ukraine and the importance of an international rules-based global order for regional and global security.

      “Our countries rely on the rules-based international order to ensure the safety and well-being of our people. Whether it be Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, the conflict in the Middle East, or some future crisis, every violation of the international order will affect us all,” Landsbergis said.

      Landsbergis said both sides were interested in diversifying supply chains, strengthening cybersecurity and building resilience to hybrid threats.

      “Diversifying the supply chain and resilience to hybrid threats are now becoming critical for economic stability and sustainable development of the countries,” Lithuania’s Foreign Minister said.

      The head of Lithuania’s diplomacy also presented the recently adopted strategy for Lithuania’s Indo-Pacific region, called “For a safer, more resilient and growth-enhancing future”. According to Landsbergis, the strategy sets out Lithuania’s key interests and activities in the region and consolidates priorities, including Nepal.

      The meeting participants also highlighted academic cooperation between Lithuania and Nepal and a deep connection between Lithuanian and Sanskrit languages.
