Today and tomorrow, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Marko Mihkelson participates in the joint visit of the chairpersons of the Foreign Affairs Committees of the parliaments of the three Baltic States in The Hague in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. He will also attend the reception in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia.
Mihkelson said that the meeting with the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament of the Netherlands would focus on the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union, and the issues related to NATO deterrence tactics and strategic communication.
“We will devote a large part of the discussion to security issues, the enlargement policy of the European value space and preventing the spread of false information,” Mihkelson said. He added that the situation in the Middle East and on the Korean Peninsula, transatlantic relations, transparency in the EU decision-making and mutual parliamentary cooperation would also be discussed.
During the visit, Mihkelson will also meet with the next Director-General of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Fernando Arias and Professor Rob de Wijk from The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies.
