Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi will visit Lithuania in early July, the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday. 

Motegi is scheduled to meet with his Lithuanian counterpart, Gabrielius Landsbergis, during his working visit on July 3.

"Delegations of Lithuania and Japan will discuss bilateral relations, cooperation within international organisations, regional and international issues," the ministry said in a press release.

The programme of the visit also includes a meeting with Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė.

The Japanese delegation is also scheduled to visit Sugihara House, Japan's former consulate in Kaunas where Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara issued thousands of so-called “visas for life" to Jews fleeing Nazi persecution, saving them from the Holocaust.

Lithuania and Japan celebrate the 30th anniversary of the re-establishment of their diplomatic relations this year and will mark the centenary of the established diplomatic ties next year, according to the press release.
