Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda will travel to France next week to discuss the migration crisis at the EU-Belarus border with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Nausėda is scheduled to visit Paris on Monday and Tuesday next week.
"The meeting will focus on the crisis on the border with Belarus, illegal migration, security, and defence issues," the president’s office said in a press release on Thursday.
Other issues to be discussed by Lithuanian and French presidents include bilateral economic cooperation, EU issues, transatlantic cooperation, the Eastern Partnership policy, and the fight against climate change.
In Paris, the Lithuanian president is also scheduled to visit the UNESCO headquarters and meet with its Director-General Audrey Azoulay. Lithuania has been recently elected to the UNESCO Executive Board for 2021-2025.
Nausėda will also meet with French business representatives and the Lithuanian community.
