“I warmly welcome Lithuania as our strategic partner in achieving joint energy goals,” Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović has said after meeting Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite in Zagreb yesterday…
Grabar-Kitarović told Grybauskaite, who is in the country on an official visit, that Croatia could learn a lesson or two about energy independence from Lithuania, who in under a decade have achieved full energy independence, including through a floating liquefied gas terminal anchored in Klaipeda.
Croatia’s President said that a Mediterranean-Baltic cooperation in energy was necessary.
“The infrastructure should be connected so that we can help each other and so that the European Union is much less dependent on energy sources from unstable areas. Croatia and Lithuania are geographically distant, but historically similar, they are both members of the EU and NATO and the only ones in the EU with a female president,” she said.
Grybauskaite will meet with Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanović today.
