Wednesday, July 1, Vilnius - President Valdas Adamkus congratulated Governor General of Canada Michaëlle Jean, on the occasion of Canada Day, wishing her nation long years of wellbeing and prosperity.

In his letter of congratulations, President Adamkus underlined that Lithuania and Canada were linked by close friendly relations and joint responsibility for a more secure world. He noted that the two countries were working together to bring stability and hope of a better life to the people of Afghanistan.

He welcomed Canada's willingness to participate in the implementation of energy projects, greatly important for Lithuania, in the Baltic Sea region.

"Your Excellency, you are always welcome in our country.
