Lithuania has joined or rejoined many international organisations, established or re-established diplomatic relations with over a hundred foreign countries. Lithuania has been offered membership in both NATO and the European Union as part of the 2003–2004 wave of enlargement.

The country has gained a good reputation in many international organisations. Lithuania is praised in the Region, as well as in Europe, for its confidence-building measures and efforts in improving the climate of good neighbourly relations. 

Strategic foreign policy objectives are as follow: maintain and develop good neighbourhood relations; contribute to international community efforts in ensuring democracy, human rights, peace and stability. 

Following EU negotiations, the government agreed to shut down Ignalina, its nuclear power station that supplies most of the country’s energy.
