Security comes first - we're part of the strongest alliances
Vilnius also has a high level of security, being a member of the international defence organisation NATO and the European Union. The meeting in the summer of 2023 NATO was culminated by a speech by United States President Joe Biden at Vilnius University: "It’s good to be back in Vilnius, a nation and a region that knows better than anyone the transformational power of freedom. You know, you showed the world that the strength of a people united cannot be denied. And together, with your brothers and sisters in Estonia and Latvia, you helped end the era of division through the power of connection. The Baltic Way, not the Berlin Wall, became the symbol for Europe’s future."
