Today, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) is visiting Finland to meet with President of Finland Sauli Niinistö and to discuss the security of the region.

Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Marko Mihkelson thinks that it is very important right now to share information with our closest partners and allies in order to ensure the security of our region and to do everything possible to prevent deepening of the security crisis around Ukraine. “As Member states of the European Union, Estonia and Finland have a major role in shaping the foreign and security policy of the Union. At the moment, it is especially significant because the future of the whole Euro-Atlantic security architecture may depend on our decisions,” Mihkelson said before the visit.

The members of the Foreign Affairs Committee will also meet with the representatives of the Finnish Institute of International Affairs and visit the Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats and the Estonian Embassy.

On Wednesday morning, the Foreign Affairs Committee will have a video conference with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Finland Pekka Haavisto.

The Estonian delegation includes Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Marko Mihkelson and members of the Committee Raivo Tamm, Indrek Saar, Mailis Reps, Henn Põlluaas and Ruuben Kaalep.
