(BNS) Now is the best time to stress the political and strategic importance of the Eastern Partnership, Deputy Speaker of the Seimas Petras Auštrevičius told BNS ahead of the meeting of parliamentary speakers of EU and Eastern Partnership countries in Vilnius.

“We believe that now is the best time to stress the political and strategic importance of the Eastern Partnership, not to forget and lose this important documents and, in general, conception in many EU political areas,” the Lithuanian politician said.

In his words, the three-day event in Vilnius will involve discussions on the issue and the adoption of documents calling on the EU to continue developing the Eastern Partnership policy and include national parliaments into the process.

“I hope this meeting in Vilnius will be productive, will reflect the existing spirit, and I do believe my fellow parliamentarians will leave with a more common, stronger and clearer position,” Auštrevičius told BNS.

In his words, EU speakers plan to express their political solidarity with Ukraine after it was subjected to Russia’s military aggression and is having a difficult political and economic time.
