Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas traveled to London today for a bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Rõivas will also visit the London office of TransferWise and give an interview to Sky News.

Rõivas and Cameron discussed the security situation and the strengthening of NATO deterrence.

British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon disclosed on Thursday that the UK will deploy troops to the Baltic states. The move forms part of the US-German Transatlantic Capability Enhancement and Training initiative, which was announced at the NATO defense ministerial in June to coordinate military training and exercises in the Baltic states and Poland, BBC reported.

In addition, the prime ministers discussed the migration crisis, the European digital single market and issues regarding the future of the EU in light of the planned referendum in the UK.

Rõivas and Cameron also met a group of Estonian soldiers, who were wounded in the NATO operation in Afghanistan alongside soldiers from Great Britain. Together they will be attending the European Championship qualifying football match between England and Estonia at Wembley Stadium tonight.
