    Baltic formins to meet with US president's natl security advisor Bolton

    VILNIUS, May 16 (LETA--BNS) – The Baltic states' foreign ministers will meet with the United States president's national security advisor John Bolton on Wednesday and are set to discuss preparations for the upcoming NATO summit and four-lateral cooperation.

    Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Linas Linkevicius says it will be a working meeting, aimed at continuing cooperation with US security officials following the resignation of former national security adviser Herbert McMaster in March.

    "As you know, we had great contacts with former national security adviser McMaster, we had regular contact, we used to discuss his very specific steps and what we should do in bilateral relations, within the NATO context, and for the upcoming summit," Linkevicius told journalists after leaving for Washington.

    "A new adviser has recently started working and we would like to renew all of this," he added.

    The Baltic states want the United States to send troops for training more often and air defense systems in order to deter Russia.

    Lithuania is also negotiating with Washington the establishment of a regional cyber security center in Lithuania's second-largest city of Kaunas.
