Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand will have a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Sunday.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Sunday, as both ministers attend the UN General Assembly.

It is not known what topics will be discussed, but Kaljurand is certainly expected to raise the question of abducted Estonian Internal Security Services agent Eston Kohver, who was tried and given 15-year jail term by Russian court on August 19.

When Kaljurand was appointed new Foreign Minister in July, she said that one of her priorities would be to meet her Russian counterpart and discuss Eston Kohver case.

The last time Estonian and Russian foreign ministers met was on February 18 in 2014, when Urmas Paet and Lavrov signed the Estonian-Russian border treaty, which is still waiting for the ratification by both countries' parliaments.
