President Obama hosted Baltic leaders on August 30

President Obama hosted an Aug. 30 summit of the Baltic states, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.

The guest list: Presidents Toomas Hendrik Ilves of Estonia, Dalia Grybauskaite of Lithuania, and Andris Berzins of Latvia.

The joint meeting at the White House "will highlight the significant transformations the Baltic states have undergone since restoring their independence two decades ago," said the announcement.

The White House added:

"Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia are valued NATO allies, and the four leaders will discuss a broad range of mutual interests, including regional cooperation on shared challenges, energy security, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations, defense, and cyber cooperation.  The presidents will also discuss joint efforts to advance human rights and democratic values, including development assistance for emerging democracies around the world.
