"Of course, the issues which are related to the security situation and region, and cooperation with European Union are critically important too. So, Lithuania was always very keen supporter of a closer dialogue between the Caucasus countries and EU. We are very keen supporter of Eastern Partnership project and we would like to discuss this issue with you too," said President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda at a meeting with President Ilham Aliyev, APA reports.
"Bilateral relations, economic relations are important and I am happy to say that I brought the business delegation and they will have a special event, discuss the issues of possible economic cooperation and we will have the opening speeches there if I remember correctly.
The culture and education is also very important, because two rectors of our universities and some other representatives of our universities came to Azerbaijan too in order to find common solutions, joint programs, double programs and to have tighter relations in this field.
I think this is very important that our countries although being at certain distance from each other, the people still remember the cultural ties since 90s. I think this is very god opportunity to, as I mentioned, to give the stimulus which is critically important," noted Lithuanian President.
