VILNIUS – Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda declared his victory in the presidential election on Sunday as he secured his second five-year term.

"They (the people of Lithuania - BNS) have given me a great mandate of trust and I am well aware that I will have to cherish this credit of trust," he told journalists in Vilnius.

"Now that I have five years of experience, I believe I will be able to use this jewel in a proper way, first and foremost to achieve the goals of prosperity for all the people of Lithuania," he added.
