VILNIUS – A NATO summit in two years will be held in Lithuania, the Alliance's leaders agreed on Monday.

Their joint communiqué says that "we look forward to meeting again in Spain in 2022, followed by our next meeting in Lithuania".

The fact was also confirmed to journalists in Brussels by Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda.

"Our work for that past 18 months, when we started thinking that we should set ourselves an ambition to host a NATO summit in Vilnius, so today this, it seems, Sisyphean task is already producing results and the NATO communiqué mentions Lithuania as the next country where a NATO summit will be organized after the 2022 summit in Spain," he said.
