Lithuania and Latvia will promote the learning of each other's language and exchange films. Moreover, border officers of both states will perform joint border patrol missions, according to an action plan approved by Lithuania's Foreign Minister Audronius Ažubalis.

The plan envisages promotion of the learning of the Latvian language in Lithuania, provide Latvian institutions with access to Lithuanian language teaching materials, establish scholarships for Latvians to study in Lithuania, exchange programs of national broadcasters, films and other cultural production on a regular basis.

According to the document, Lithuania and Latvia will organize events to mark the Baltic Day every year and invite top-ranking officials, start preparatory work for establishment of a Lithuanian-Latvian youth cooperation forum, organize competitions for school children that would promote deeper understanding of both nations and countries, organize student and teacher exchange.

An agreement between Lithuanian and Latvian border guard and police institutions is also planned for joint patrol of border territories to prevent crimes, as well as a governmental agreement on legal regulation of the state border.

Under the plan, Lithuania and Latvia should cooperate in the efforts to take care of the graves and monuments to Lithuanian troops and guerrilla fighters buried in Latvia.

The two neighboring countries will seek to agree on emergency assistance in the border zone.

In early 2010, Lithuanian and Latvian prime ministers, Andrius Kubilius and Valdis Dombrovskis, initiated a joint study into perspectives for Lithuanian-Latvian cooperation. Drafted by ambassadors Neris Germanas and Alberts Sarkanis, the report on cooperation perspectives provides recommendations on deepening and expanding the cooperation in various fields. Implementation of the plan is coordinated by the Foreign Ministry, it involves ministries and other state institutions and agencies of Lithuania.

Latvia's Foreign Ministry has worked out an analogous action plan.
