Lithuania’s president called for boosting the security of the Baltic states with U.S. troops, after meeting with U.S. Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin in Vilnius on Saturday.

“The Russian military buildup at the eastern NATO border is changing the security situation,” President Gitanas Nauseda said in a statement published after the meeting.

“It is critically important to strengthen the (Baltic states) regional security with additional troops from the United States and quicken cooperation in military procurement,” he added.
