Prime Minister: Britain in the EU in Estonia’s interest ({{commentsTotal}})

Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas (Reform) said to daily Postimees on Wednesday that it would be in Estonia’s interest if the United Kingdom would remain a member of the European Union.

Rõivas said that seen both from an Estonian and a European perspective it would be positive if British voters decided tomorrow that their country should remain in the EU.

“Britain is an important ally of Estonia, and we share the same views in many matters,” Rõivas said. He added that it was very good to know that a large country was sitting at the table that thought along the same lines as Estonia, in matters of defense policy, and in many matters relating to the economies of the two countries as well.

The prime minister pointed to speculations that the more people would go and vote, the more likely the decision would be to remain in the union.
