In the framework of his visit to Warsaw, Republic of Poland, Viktoras Pranckietis, Speaker of the Seimas, met with Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of Law and Justice, the Polish ruling party.
The meeting discussed, among other relevant issues, the prospect of bilateral relations and the situation of ethnic minorities.

Mr Pranckietis and Mr Kaczyński welcomed the renewed activities of the bilateral parliamentary assembly, which would hopefully yield tangible results and promote further development of bilateral relations.
