Obama: “Baltic region remains in United States’ center of attention”

Lithuanian President, Dalia Grybauskaite met with the U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday, who assured her that the Baltic region remained in the center of United States’ attention.

The two presidents had a brief meeting on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague. According to Grybauskaite, their meeting focused on the security of the Baltic region and the Baltic States as well as on the situation in Ukraine.

Grybauskaite said following the meeting that she was very glad that the United States and the country's president had confirmed that the Baltic countries were in the center of attention and in the area of U.S. interests. As a result, the Baltics may be safe and continue deciding on security together with the United States, she said.

As reported, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said after a meeting with Grybauskaite and Latvian President Andris Berzins in Vilnius last week, "Under Article 5 of the NATO Treaty, we will respond, we will respond to any aggression against a NATO ally."

Biden went on to say: "We are exploring a number of additional steps to increase the pace and scope of our military cooperation, including rotating US forces in the Baltic region to conduct ground and naval exercises and training missions."
