July 10, Vilnius. Vice-minister of energy Aleksandras Spruogis has participated in the 5 th meeting of the Strategic Group for International Energy cooperation. The key topic in the meeting of the Strategic Group was the progress and perspectives of the cooperation of the European Union with the Eastern Partnership countries in the field of energy.

During the meeting Vice-minister stressed that strengthening of the EU’s energy policy external dimension is one of the main priorities of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council in the energy field. Shared values and commitments between EU and the countries of Eastern Partnership should be formalized by mutual legally binding obligations.
