The three Baltic prime ministers all confirmed their signatures of support – in the case of Latvia's Krišjānis Kariņš, shortly before he is due to hand in his resignation on Thursday.
Today the Baltic countries issue the statement on joining the #G7 Declaration of Support for Ukraine. As it clearly states - we will help #Ukraine win this war, support its economic stability and reconstruction, resilience, reforms and its European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations. pic.twitter.com/3Xt2tIyTmC— Krišjānis Kariņš (@krisjaniskarins) August 17, 2023
The move comes one day before the three prime ministers are due to meet in Tallinn, Estonia. In Thursday's joint statement, the Baltic trio promise to "keep supporting Ukraine until victory" and that "only NATO membership" will provide Ukraine with the security guarantees it needs in future.
The G7 declaration was released in July and its full text is available here.
