“When Lithuania and other Baltic and Central European countries joined the EU, the Union’s new borders shifted significantly towards the East. The world’s most powerful countries have been fighting for their interests in this area, and spheres of influence have been changing – we have been watching these processes throughout the preparation for the Summit,” said Benediktas Juodka, Chair of the Seimas Committee on Foreign Affairs, who today at the Seimas opened the meeting of the Chairpersons of the Committees on Foreign Affairs and the Parliamentary Forum for Democracy, Parliaments for Democracy: Towards More Ambitious Global Cooperation.
