Lithuania continues to show its high interest for the additional U.S. troops presence on its territory.
The authorities believe that the U.S. military will help to preserve the independence of the country. “We are ready to host more U.S. troops, and see them as the best deterrence here,” said Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė.
Thus, Lithuania said on March 14 that NATO is sending thousands of additional troops to the eastern part of the alliance “as a result of the shifts in geopolitical situation”. “We will create three new military camps to host our Allies in Lithuania: reinforcements will be welcomed in Marijampole, Kazlu Ruda and Pabrade, where a U.S. tank battalion has been on rotation since 2014,” the Lithuanian Defence Ministry said on Twitter. The new military camps will be set up at Lithuanian Armed Forces divisions to ensure NATO’s host nation support to allies deploying to Lithuania, he added.
