Belgian King Phillip, Queen Mathilde arrived in Lithuania for 3-day State Visit

The King of Belgium, Philippe, along with Queen Mathilde, arrived in Lithuania on Monday at the head of a high-level delegation for a 3-day State visit.

The royal couple was welcomed around 1:00 pm local time at the international airport of Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania. One hour later, they were received at an official ceremony at the presidential palace by Lithuanian delegation led by President Gitanas Nauseda and his wide Diana Nausediene.

The delegation of Belgium, which includes the prime ministers of the three regions as following-

  • Elio Di Rupo (Wallonia)
  • Jan Jambon (Flanders)
  • Rudi Vervoort (Brussels)

will have a relatively busy programme in the Baltic nation. Their agenda includes visits to several economic, political, cultural and academic institutions.

Military cooperation between the two NATO members will also be highlighted, as the King will visit Belgian troops in Pabrad on Wednesday.

This week’s state visit marks the hundredth anniversary of the starting of diplomatic ties between the two countries.
