Lithuania’s Chief of Defense Valdemaras Rupsys and General Rajmund T. Andrzejczak, chief of the General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces, signed a respective agreement on Friday.

According to Rupsys, the cooperation plan signed in Vilnius outlines priorities and the main areas of cooperation.

“The agreement provides for clear guidelines on sharing intelligence in all dimensions. We have been doing that for years and that cooperation is particularly important for us, for Lithuania, because the Polish Armed Forces provide us with full assistance in supplying intelligence,” he said during a joint news conference in Vilnius on Friday.

“The document also refers to military drills and provides for possibilities of unannounced exercises. During such drills, we will check the readiness of forces and ensure territorial unity and integrity. It’s one of the measures of deterrence,” Rupsys added.
