I join President Obama in offering my sincere condolences on the passing of former President of Lithuania Algirdas Brazauskas. President Brazauskas led Lithuania through a period of remarkable change and transformation. He played a crucial role in the independence movement that liberated his country and inspired people all over the world.
As the first president of a free Lithuania, and later as prime minister, he worked to deliver on the promise of democracy. Under his leadership, Lithuania joined NATO and the European Union and developed a strong partnership with the United States. President Brazauskas was a champion for his nation and his people. Today our thoughts and prayers are with his family and with all the people of Lithuania.
