May 19th, 2023, U.S. Ambassador Robert Gilchrist visited Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) to discuss Current Global Security Challenges with students.

Ambassador Gilchrist addressed some of the pressing global security issues that our world faces. He emphasized that global security is not a solitary pursuit, but a shared responsibility that requires collective action and collaboration among nations.

He also highlighted the importance of unity among allies, especially now, in support of Ukraine.

The United States recognizes the importance of promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in ensuring global security. Ambassador Gilchrist noted that human rights are always a part of U.S. foreign policy, so we must continue to support democratic movements around the world and protect human rights.

She also noted that such meetings, with practitioners and leaders, enrich the learning process and allow students to look at global security problems from a multifaceted perspective.
