As Lithuania celebrates the 15th anniversary of its membership in NATO this coming Saturday, March 30, a festive public event will be held at 12 noon in Daukantas Square in front of the Presidential Palace.
The open-air ceremony – entitled “15 Years Safe and Secure with NATO! “ – will be attended by President Dalia Grybauskaitė, members of parliament and government, foreign ambassadors and military attachés, founders of the Lithuanian armed forces, Lithuanian Riflemen’s Union, youth and school student organizations, as well as the residents and guests of Vilnius.
According to the President, Lithuania has never been so safe and secure as today. After joining NATO 15 years ago, Lithuania became part of the world’s most powerful defense alliance with strong collective security guarantees. Today Lithuania not only has NATO’s unwavering support and solidarity, but it is also an active contributor to global peace efforts.
