The BNS quoted the Lithuania president saying that NATO’s newly elected secretary general, incumbent Danish Prime Minister Rasmussen understands what problems Lithuania is faced with.

NATO’s 60th anniversary summit in Strasbourg Kiel was successful from all points of view, the Lithuanian president told the press after the event came to a close on Saturday.  “By electing a new secretary general NATO yet again demonstrated its unity. He (Rasmussen – BNS) is Lithuania’s very close and good friend, who well perceives our problems,” Adamkus said to BNS.

The BNS reminds that Adamkus had worked hand-in-hand with Rasmussen dealing with issues on regulating transit of Russian citizens through Lithuania, Adamkus said.

“We were on the phone practically every day, he was a mediator in attempting to tackle this issue and establishing some ground rules. So we’ve got a long-standing relationship, he has demonstrated his prudence and firm stance. I am certain he will make a good NATO secretary general,” Adamkus spoke to BNS.

Rasmussen should take the NATO wheel in the end of the summer, therein replacing Dutch Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.
