Honourable Members of the European Commission,
Representatives of the European Year of Citizens Alliance,
Ladies and gentlemen,
I am glad to have the honour of opening this closing conference of the European Year of Citizens. My colleague, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, had to leave urgently to Ukraine, the citizens of which are especially in need of Europe’s support today. He asked me to tell you that he would like to be here, and that this conference has to encourage us to continue being active citizens of Lithuania and Europe.
