VILNIUS – Lithuanian Interior Minister Agne Bilotaite is taking part in a ministerial conference on migration challenges in Prague on Monday.

Participants of the conference are expected to approve a political declaration and an action plan for 2023-2027, the Lithuanian Interior Ministry has said in a press release.  

The Prague Process is one of the four EU regional cooperation processes on migration.

According to the ministry, these processes help to focus on the common specificities of a given region, to identify common interests and consolidate efforts in response to common challenges, to strengthen cooperation on migration management, and to assist EU partners in bolstering their capacities.

The Prague Process brings together EU member states, associated Schengen countries, and countries from Southeastern and Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Following the launch of Belarus-orchestrated hybrid attacks against Latvia, Poland and Lithuania, and later Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the Prague Process countries have distanced themselves from cooperation with Russia and Belarus.
