The meeting will take place within the framework of the Baltic Council of Ministers.

Skvernelis is also scheduled to meet with his Polish counterpart, Beata Szydlo, for bilateral talks during his visit to the Estonian capital, Arnoldas Pikžirnis, an advisor to the Lithuanian prime minister, confirmed to BNS.

"This is the first ever meeting with the Polish prime minister and all issues that may arise can possibly be discussed," he said.

Issues on the agenda of the Baltic Council of Ministers meeting include security, the Baltic power grids' synchronization with Western Europe and the European standard-gauge railway project Rail Baltica.

"It is in Lithuania's interest to discuss the (Klaipėda) liquefied natural gas terminal as a regional one," the adviser said.

Set up in 1994, the Baltic Council of Ministers is an institution of co-operation between the three Baltic governments.
