VILNIUS – Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda and his Latvian and Estonian counterparts will on Tuesday take part in a discussion organized by the US think-tank Atlantic Council, as the Baltic countries mark 18 years since their accession to NATO. 

In the remote event, the Baltic leaders will discuss Russia's invasion of Ukraine, regional security and threats, and the reinforcement of NATO forces on the Eastern flank.

They should also discuss measures to help Ukraine and Europe's role in the war.

"The recent NATO summit in Brussels will be discussed," Tomas Berzinskas, Nauseda's spokesman, has told BNS. 

"The president will also talk about further assistance to Ukraine, especially military assistance, the strengthening of NATO's eastern flank and the security of the Baltic region, and Lithuania's actions," he said. 

The three Baltic countries joined NATO on March 29, 2004.
