The Portuguese Minister of Defence, João Gomes Cravinho, and the Chief of Staff of the Navy, Admiral António Mendes Calado, visited the Portuguese Marine and Diving Forces deployed in Lithuania.
The forces deployed in the country are contributing to NATO's collective effort in Central and Eastern Europe, strengthening the Alliance's deterrence and response capabilities against potential threats.
In the words of the Defence Minister, “It was with great pride that I noted the Lithuanians have for them [Portuguese forces], and to see how they support the training and security of our Ally”. At the end of the second day of the visit to the country, and after meeting with the Lithuanian Defence Minister Raimundas Karoblis, and with President Gitanas Nauseda, he further stated that “it was very gratifying to see how since 2015, the presence of the Portuguese Armed Forces in Lithuania is appreciated at the highest level”.
