‘I am pleased that Lithuania and Ireland are linked by a special partnership, which we believe will continue to develop successfully through mutual gratifying and sincere cooperation. I am very happy that there is a sizeable and dynamic Lithuanian community in Ireland helping us not only to maintain but also to strengthen these relations,’ said Dalia Asanavičiūtė, MP.
