Baltic states mark century of diplomatic relations with United States

The Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania mark one hundred years of diplomatic relations with the United States of America on July 28.

To mark the occasion, the presidents of the Baltic states sent a letter to their American counterpart, Joe Biden.

The Presidential Chancellery released brief extracts of the letter's actual text in a press release, in which the Presidents say:

"For Baltics (sic) independence was not a gift, we had to defend it on the battlefield. We know that freedom, sovereignty and independence are priceless. So do the Ukrainians. We wish to thank the United States of America for efforts to ensure that the US stands with Ukraine, together with its Allies and partners."

According to the Chancellery the congratulatory letter thanks the US for helping to build a world based on international norms and universal principles and thanks the United States for its policy of non-recognition of the Soviet occupation of the Baltics. The Chancellery told LSM the full text of the letter was not being made public.
