Macron: France to stand by Baltic countries on security

April 09, 2018 - 10:03 AM

PARIS - French President Emmanuel Macron says France is standing by the Baltic countries on security and defence issues.

The presidents of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia were in Paris on Monday, when they stressed their commitment to NATO amid tensions between the West and Russia.

Macron told the Baltic leaders: "This choice of Europe you made is all the more important in a very troubled and uncertain international context. This situation compels us to pursue the close co-operation between our countries."

The Baltic states are seen as a bulwark against Russian aggression in Eastern Europe.

None of the leaders made an explicit reference to Russia.
