Alexander Vershbow: "First of all as we look at our future defence and trans posture, it is indeed going to be very important what each of the member countries can do for themselves to strengthen their defence forces and resilience against hybrid and cyber attacks. So, I think working with the NATO defence planners to determine one of the best ways the countries like Lithuania can contribute to their own defence but also to the integrated air and missile defence of the alliance. This is something that can also benefit from closer collaboration with individual members of the alliance that can work with Lithuania. So these are things that are very much a subject of active work within the alliance."
