On a two-day visit to Ireland, President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Eiki Nestor will meet with President of Ireland Michael Higgins and the speakers of the lower and upper houses of the Oireachtas (Parliament of Ireland) to discuss the future of the European Union, Brexit, and the security issues of Europe.

“For Estonia it is important that the European Union remains strong and unified in creating security for its citizens as well as in developing the European single market and in Brexit issues,” Nestor said. “At the meetings we plan to speak about remaining united and about common interests. We are also going to discuss the EU’s cooperation with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, and relations with Russia.”

Nestor’s meetings with President Higgins, and Chairman of the Seanad (upper house of the Oireachtas) Denis O’Donovan and Speaker of the Dáil (lower house of the Oireachtas) Seán Ó Feargháil will take place on Tuesday. The President of the Riigikogu will also meet with members of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Committee on European Union Affairs.
