Monday, May 18, Vilnius - President of the Republic of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus had a farewell meeting with the outgoing Ambassador of the Republic of India, Mr. Chandra Mohan Bhandari.


The President thanked the Indian Ambassador, who resided in Lithuania, for his personal contribution to closer bilateral relations between Lithuania and India.


President Adamkus and the Ambassador discussed bilateral political and economic relations. The President underlined that Lithuania was highly appreciating India's economic progress and was interested in developing further their bilateral trade relations.


The President said he was pleased with the activities developed by Lithuania's Embassy opened last summer in Delhi.


"Lithuania's Embassy will contribute significantly to economic exchanges between our countries and I am confident that India's business community will see us as a more and more reachable country," the President said.
