At their meeting today, President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Henn Põlluaas and Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrej Babiš spoke of energy security and climate neutrality targets.

The discussion focused on the possibilities of replacing fossil fuels with nuclear energy and the use of green energy in energy production. The security of the region and budget of the European Union were also spoken about at the meeting.

Põlluaas said that the Czech Republic was a close partner to Estonia, and that they were of the same mind in many issues. “We have a common understanding on security, the energy sector and in the digital sphere,” Põlluaas added. “I highly appreciate the contribution of the Czech Republic in the defence cooperation of the region, and I thank the Czech Republic for their support to Estonia at the elections of the non-permanent members of the UN Security Council.”  

Chair of the European Union Affairs Committee Anneli Ott and Chairman of the Estonia-Czechia Parliamentary Group Aivar Sõerd also participated in the meeting and gave the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic an overview of the work of the Riigikogu.
