EU foreign ministers will discuss the latest developments on the ground in Ukraine, and the EU’s security commitments to Ukraine, including military support, new sanctions against Russia and Belarus, the use of frozen Russian assets to help Ukraine and Russia’s accountability for the crime of aggression, based on the outcomes of the meeting of the Core Group on the creation of the special tribunal for the crime of aggression against Ukraine held in Vilnius on 10 May. 

Foreign ministers will also discuss the situation in the Middle East and the prospects for resuming the peace process in the region. 

Landsbergis will also share his insights after the joint visit of the foreign ministers of Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, and Lithuania to Georgia. Together with all his EU counterparts, he will discuss the situation in this country after the adoption of the ‘Foreign Agents’ law, the repression of Georgian civil society, and the EU’s response to it. 

During the visit, the Foreign Minister will confer Lithuania’s Diplomatic Star on Stefano Tomat, Managing Director for Civilian Planning and Conduct Capability at the EU’s External Action Service (EEAS), and Mario Massimo Santoro, Head of the Secretary-General’s Office at the European External Action Service (EEAS).

During his visit to Brussels, Landsbergis will also meet with the participants of the European Diplomatic Academy and the Rector of the College of Europe, Federica Mogherini, and discuss the most pressing items on the EU agenda and Lithuania’s foreign policy priorities.
