President said goodbye to the Italian Ambassador

President of the Republic of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus said goodbye to the outgoing Ambassador of the Italian Republic Mr. Giulio Prigioni.

The discussion during the meeting centred around Lithuanian-Italian bilateral relations. The President said he highly appreciated the development of cultural cooperation between the two countries and the growing flows of Italian tourists to Lithuania. According to Mr. Adamkus, there is a further need to intensify the political cooperation between the two states and to ensure a better use of economic opportunities.

President Adamkus said he hoped the long-standing issue concerning Villa Lituania, Lithuania's pre-war embassy in Rome, would be solved in the near future. The President underlined it was a matter of historic justice for Lithuania and the solution of this issue would once again consolidate the unity of the two partners in the European Union and their shared moral values.

Mr. Adamkus wished the Italian Ambassador every success in his further diplomatic career and his mission in Lithuania's neighbourhood, Belarus.
