Created: 2017.05.22 / Updated: 2017.05.22 20:45

Did you know that Lithuania for almost a decade was in charge of Provincial Reconstruction Team(PRT)  in the whole of Ghor province in Afghanistan? The Lithuanian-run PRT included military and civilian representatives from 7 countries: Denmark, Georgia, Iceland, Japan, U.S.A., Croatia and Ukraine. Besides, Lithuanian Special Forces conducted missions in Afghanistan for 13 years.

Today Lithuania continues to render assistance to Afghanistan, our soldiers are on a mission in Iraq, we are part of a global coalition to eradicate Daesh.

In a changed  European security environment, Lithuania increased its defence expenditures, that are expected to reach slightly over 2% GDP in 2018.

In a 2,5 minutes video you can find about more about Lithuania’s homework in enhancing its & the region’s security. #WeAreNATO, #TransatlanticLink, #AlliedStrong
