VILNIUS – Lithuania will remember Queen Elizabeth II as sincere and loving people, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda said on Monday as he attended the funeral of the longest-serving monarch in British history.
“Lithuania will remember Queen Elizabeth II the way we saw her during a visit to our country back in 2006 – as sincere and loving people,” a press release from the presidential office quoted Nauseda as saying.
According to the Lithuanian leader, Queen Elizabeth II’s impressive 70 years of reign were a certain constant of stability.
“Let’s also not forget the solid foundation of values, which the queen relied on when assessing global events,” he noted.
Nauseda also emphasized that Lithuania and the United Kingdom were like-minded countries, which would continue working towards the welfare of their people, countering emerging challenges and threats to the transatlantic space.
During the funeral of the British Queen, the Lithuanian president was accompanied by First Lady Diana Nausediene.
