The Foreign Affairs Committees of the Baltic parliaments are meeting today and tomorrow in Kuressaare to discuss further cooperation in supporting Ukraine and enhancing the security of the region.

The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Marko Mihkelson describes the cooperation with Latvian and Lithuanian Foreign Affairs Committees as closer than ever, as is testified by numerous joint visits and statements. “If we hope to achieve our goals in foreign and security policy, it is crucial that we continue our close cooperation, harmonise our positions, and plan our further steps together,” he said.

The meeting will focus on supporting Ukraine in its fight against Russia, who continues its war of aggression. The Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Jonatan Vseviov will take part in the discussion on Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and the global security situation more broadly. The Ambassador of Sweden to Estonia Ingrid Tersman will participate in the discussion on cooperation within NATO and strengthening European security.

The delegations of Foreign Affairs Committees will take part in a commemoration of victims of the 1941 June deportation in Kudjape cemetery and lay flowers on their memorial. They are also scheduled to visit Baltic Workboats in Nasva.

Other members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu to take part in the meeting with Baltic colleagues are Ester Karuse and Luisa Rõivas.
