At the meetings with Prime Minister of Kosovo Albin Kurti today, President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Jüri Ratas and Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Andres Sutt assured that Estonia strongly supported Kosovo’s integration with the European Union and was ready to share its experience.

Ratas said at the meeting that Estonia and Kosovo shared the same values and the relations between the two countries were friendly and excellent. “Estonia supports Kosovo’s aspirations to become a member of international organisations as well as the EU integration of Kosovo. It is especially important in the current turbulent times,” he added, and assured that Estonia was ready to share its experience and strengthen cooperation also in the spheres of education and IT, including e-governance and cyber security.

At the meeting with Kurti, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Andres Sutt thanked Kosovo for joining all sanctions imposed by the European Union against Russia. “Ukraine is also fighting for our freedom today, while Russia continues committing war crimes, killing innocent people and destroying the infrastructure in Ukraine,” he said.

Sutt also assured that Estonia strongly supports Kosovo’s EU aspirations and visa liberalisation with the EU, which Kosovo had been looking forward to for years, and was ready to develop bilateral cooperation with Kosovo.

The situation in Kosovo and the Western Balkans more broadly, as well as energy and food security issues were also discussed at the meetings.
