Lithuania, presiding over the Council of the European Union, marked the Eastern Partnership as one of its key priorities. The country is interested in having economically sound and promising neighbours in the East which are oriented towards European values and democratization. In order to achieve these goals, the Eastern Partnership is the most efficient instrument, and program’s sustainable development is ensured by cultural diplomacy. But such a strengthening of relations is just an introduction because the culmination will take place on 28–29 November, during the Summit in Vilnius, where the fate of the Partnership and its countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine – will be determined.
