Lithuania’s Contribution to Global Security & NATO’s Missions
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.
