Nauseda spontaneously accepted the invitation during a press conference in Vilnius.

"I am inviting you to the 610th anniversary of the Battle of Zalgiris. I believe we'll have many re-enactors who will nicely re-enact the course of that major battle and we will be able to enjoy the Polish-Lithuanian victory once again," Duda said.

"The Polish president invited me so spontaneously (…), so I accepted the invitation just as spontaneously," Nauseda said.
