Concluding his USA visit President Adamkus declared that it had been a very intense and exceptionally successful visit. No Baltic leader has so far been accorded so much attention by the American Government. Lithuanians still remember the visit of President Bush to Lithuania in November 2002, just before Lithuania received the formal invitation to join NATO, when he declared: "Anyone who would choose Lithuania as an enemy has also made an enemy of the United States of America".
