The most important thing we can do now is to encourage your accession to both NATO and the European Union.

Daiga Mieriņa in Prague: We must not show doubt in response to Russia’s aggression
“Russia’s atrocities have not crushed the bravery of Ukraine’s defenders. Likewise, we must not show doubt in response to Russia’s aggression. Russia will interpret our doubt as a chance.

Speaker of the Saeima in Vilnius: Not a single day or minute to lose in our support for Ukraine
We must not lose a single day or even a minute in hesitation to support Ukraine. As people of the Baltic States, we understand this well, and we are the advocates convincing our allies to take similar action. We must also send the message to our people that we are unwavering and tireless, said Daiga Mieriņa, Speaker of the Saeima, on Friday, 6 October, to her Lithuanian colleagues during a working visit to the country’s capital Vilnius.
Speaker of the Saeima Daiga Mieriņa in Tallinn: Estonian could be the second foreign language in our border region
We aim to fortify cooperation with our Baltic neighbours in the border areas. As Russian will no longer be taught in Latvian schools, in the future, Estonian could potentially replace it as the second foreign language in the northern border regions of the country, while Latvian could be integrated into the Estonian school curriculum. This would not only reinforce the position of our national languages against other foreign languages, but also address the shortage of foreign language teachers, as stated by Daiga Mieriņa, Speaker of the Saeima, during her official visit to Tallinn, Estonia, on Tuesday, 3 October.
Speaker Mieriņa in Saldus: Baltic Unity Day is a testament to Latvian–Lithuanian unity
