  • The Indian Mission in Lithuania will better assist the Indian community and protect their interests.

  • This will have a direct impact in increasing domestic production and employment in line with our goal of self-reliant India.

  • India - Lithuania

  • India recognized Lithuania (along with the other Baltic states of Latvia and Estonia) on 7 September 1991 following the acceptance of their independence by the then USSR.

  • India's diplomatic relations with Lithuania were established on 25 February 1992.

  • The Lithuanian language, the oldest surviving Indo-European language, has great similarities with Sanskrit, so it reflects ancient links with India.
