Heads of foreign states in Vilnius to congratulate Lithuania on its birthdayFebruary 16, 2018
Dear Fellow Lithuanians,
The centennial of the restoration of the state of Lithuania on February 16 is a very special and long-awaited celebration!
The unrivaled experience of 1918 – when we regained national independence – is the best testament to the remarkable things we can achieve standing together for the survival of our homeland and its future.
February 16 tells us a compelling story about people of great determination and resolve, who reinstated Lithuania on the world map as a modern, democratic and respected nation.
We are part of this history as we continue building Lithuania across the 21st century to make it prosperous and secure.
We all are the children of Lithuania. Today we wish her a happy birthday anniversary and embrace her with warmth and love.
We are so fortunate to be witness to this historic celebration. May it stay in our hearts forever.
Happy centennial celebrations to all of you!
Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania
