Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda will pay a two-day working visit to Germany on Wednesday.

He is scheduled to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and take part in a meeting with the German, Latvian and Estonian presidents.

The meetings will focus on bilateral Lithuanian–German relations, cooperation in defence and security, and the management of irregular migration, the Lithuanian presidential press service said.

"Our connection is based on common democratic values, respect for human rights and the idea of a united Europe," Nausėda said in a statement.

During his visit, the Lithuanian president is also scheduled to meet with heads of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, as well as members of the Lithuanian community in Germany.

The German chancellor discussed irregular migration during her visit to Poland on Saturday. She urged Belarus to help migrants instead of sending them over the border to the EU, calling it a "hybrid attack".
