Lithuania and Malta share common goals in the European Union President Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania met with President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca of Malta, which currently presides over the European Union, to discuss EU issues of key relevance to Lithuania and to share Lithuania’s presidency experience. The President will also discuss these issues with Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.

According to Dalia Grybauskaitė, Malta has a good understanding of Lithuania’s energy security interests. Both countries had been energy islands for a long time. Today, Lithuania and Malta are regarded as success examples for eliminating energy isolation.

Malta, just like Lithuania, made resolute and bold decisions. It built an electricity interconnection with Italy and in January it opened an LNG terminal. Lithuania has sufficient expertise in the development of LNG-related business, investment, innovation, new competences, and competitiveness – all of which can be valuable to Malta. For Lithuania, meanwhile, the support of Malta as EU presiding member state for funding the synchronization of Baltic electricity grids with continental Europe is very important.
