Press Release of the Estonia-Finland Parliamentary Group of the Riigikogu.

Today, the Estonia-Finland Parliamentary Group released a statement emphasising that the Estonians and Finns are kindred nations who share the same values, concerns, and joys.

‘Our friendship is as strong as a rock, our security indivisible, and our economic relations are close,’ the statement stresses.

‘Both Estonia and Finland are countries where an individual’s life is not determined by their origin, gender, or the first job of their career. This is something we can be proud of on both sides of the Gulf of Finland.

We are unambiguous in our condemnation of the statements made by Mart Helme, which jeopardise our friendship and allied relations, and we are committed to making every effort to ensure the continuation of excellent relations.

On behalf of the Riigikogu Parliamentary Group, we welcome the inauguration of Prime Minister Sanna Marin and the whole Finnish government, and wish them success and strength to do their work,’ the statement reads.

The President of the Estonia-Finland Parliamentary Group Taavi Rõivas forwarded the statement to the Finland-Estonia Friendship Group of the Finnish parliament.
