US-European energy dialogue important for Baltics

The dialogue between the United States and Europe in the area of energy is very important for ensuring the security of the Baltic states and Lithuania, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda says.

“It has never been more important, especially for those countries that have seen energy resources being used against them as a geopolitical weapon. I believe that the P-TEC (the Partnership for Transatlantic Energy Cooperation) initiative offers a way out of this state of long-standing insecurity”.

On Sunday, Lithuania together with Estonia, Latvia and the United States agreed to have a regular high-level energy dialogue at the margins of P-TEC ministerial meetings.

The Lithuanian president also said that special attention would soon be paid to the cyber security of the Baltic states’ strategic energy infrastructure.
