VILNIUS – Latvia's new Prime Minister Evika Silina will pay a visit to Lithuania on Tuesday, the Lithuanian government said on Monday.

She is scheduled to meet Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte.

This will be the first meeting between the two heads of government. They are expected to discuss bilateral relations, regional security, the importance of long-term support for Ukraine and the unified application and strengthening of the existing sanctions for Russia, and the progress of joint Lithuanian-Latvian infrastructure projects, the statement said.

Latvia's new government was approved in September following the resignation of former Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins.

Silina, 48, has a law degree and was elected to the Latvian Saeima in October 2022.
