On March 13 at 3:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CET, the Atlantic Council is hosting an #ACFrontPage conversation with Latvian Prime Minister Evika Siliņa. The prime minister will explore Latvia’s role in transatlantic affairs and its importance in the Baltic region as a bulwark against Russia. 

In the two years since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine began, Latvia has reaffirmed its status as a steadfast NATO ally and a pivotal player in efforts to safeguard stability, promote collective defense, and support Kyiv. Additionally, Latvia has surpassed NATO’s 2 percent of gross domestic product defense-spending threshold and currently hosts a NATO forward presence battle group to bolster the Alliance’s eastern flank. 

With several important milestones to come over the course of this year—including the twentieth anniversary of Latvia’s accession to NATO and the Alliance’s seventy-fifth anniversary—Siliņa joins the Atlantic Council to outline her government’s priorities for the upcoming NATO Summit in Washington and to discuss how the United States and the Baltic countries can continue to work together to strengthen their collective security. 

This event is part of the Transatlantic Security Initiative’s 2024 NATO Washington Summit Campaign. For more information and updates on future events and publications, follow @ACScowcroft.

The event will also be livestreamed on Atlantic Council TV, YouTube, Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter). To register, please complete the registration form.
