Visit of the U.S. Senator John McCain - 2016 12 29
On the evening of 29th of December, 2016, we had a great honour to welcome a very distinguished guest, the US Senator John McCain, to our Institute.
During the meeting with students, politicians and other esteemed guests, he discussed and answered many questions on various topics. He ensured us that the U.S. will remain Lithuania's partner and close ally, despite what the president-elect of the U.S. is saying. He also thanked and rejoiced that Lithuania is following up on its promises to allocate 2 % of its GDP to defense. He also ensured that the U.S. will support and help Ukraine and was glad that Lithuania is playing an important role there.
It was his last meeting on his agenda in Lithuania. What a way to end the year!
