On Sunday, the President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Eiki Nestor met with the President of Poland Andrzej Duda at Toompea. Cooperation between the parliaments of Estonia and Poland, security situation in Ukraine and NATO’s activities in reinforcing security were discussed at the meeting.
“Poland is an important and close partner to Estonia both at the level of states and in cooperation between the parliaments. We are similar and open-minded in our expressions and our direct reaction to the issues that concern the threats to the security of our region,” Nestor said.
“In the 20th century, the people of Estonia and Poland experienced great sufferings that were caused by the ambitions of criminal states and the agreements concluded between them. This experience keeps our attention and minds alert to such tendencies also now,” Nestor added.
Nestor considered the practical cooperation between the parliaments of Estonia and Poland very positive, and he was convinced it would continue to strengthen also after the Polish parliamentary elections in October.
The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Hannes Hanso also took part in the meeting.
