Message of congratulations to President Toomas Hendrik Ilves of the Republic of Estonia on 94th Anniversary of Declaration of Independence
Dear Mr. President,
On behalf of the Lithuanian people and on my own behalf, I extend sincere congratulations on the 94th Anniversary of Estonia's Declaration of Independence. I wish you and the people of your country success and prosperity.
Symbolically, on these days of great importance for the Baltic States (February 16 - Lithuania, February 24 - Estonia, November 18 - Latvia) three national flags are raised in their capital cities. It is a tradition that demonstrates our unity and joint aspirations as well as an invitation to further strengthen dialogue and cooperation between the three Baltic countries through deeds and actions.
Once again, congratulations on Independence Day. Please accept, Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration.
Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania
