Take note – story published 1 year ago

On 4 October, President of Latvia Egils Levits met with President of Poland Andrzej Duda in Warsaw, to discuss how countries should coordinate joint efforts to help Ukraine.

Presidents of both countries underlined that ‘referendums’ held by Russia in occupied regions of Ukraine are illegal and their results are illegitimate.

"Annexed parts of Ukraine have become Russia only for Putin," Egils Levits said, according to a release from the Presidential Chancellery.

The Presidents of Latvia and Poland also discussed energy security and in particular security of infrastructure. President Duda briefly described regional efforts of Visegrad Group members.

Levits informed his Polish counterpart about the outcomes of general elections in Latvia and next steps in forming a government.

"Egils Levits reassured his colleague that Latvia’s foreign policy will remain unchanged and Latvia will continue to prioritise close cooperation with Allies in ensuring its external security," the release said.

Both men were signatories of a recent statement on Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, as previously reported.
