At the meeting of President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Henn Põlluaas and President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda, bilateral relations between the two countries, cooperation of the Baltic States, security situation in the region and the issues relating to ensuring energy security were discussed.

Põlluaas congratulated Nausėda on being elected the President of Lithuania and expressed his delight that he visited Estonia on a historical day, the Day of Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Estonia.

Nausėda said that the aim of his visit was to strengthen the good-neighbourly relations between Lithuania and Estonia and to develop regional cooperation. It was admitted at the meeting that the Baltic States had common interests and understanding in many topics that were important to the whole Baltic region.

Põlluaas and Nausėda considered it necessary to enhance defence cooperation in order to ensure security of the region.

“Estonia and Lithuania have excellent bilateral relations that are connected with the cooperation in the Baltic Assembly. The Nordic parliaments are also involved in this cooperation. Through it, we wish to ensure realising of common objectives,” Põlluaas said.

Põlluaas and Nausėda gave a short overview of the activities of their parliaments. They found that the parliaments of the two countries cooperate closely, and the embassies of both countries also contributed actively to this.

Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Enn Eesmaa also participated in the meeting.
