Foreign Minister Jürgen Ligi (Reform) participated in a meeting in Bukarest of foreign ministers of nine of NATO’s Central and Eastern European members where the regional security situation was discussed, as well as implementing the decisions made at the NATO Warsaw Summit.

“The decisions made at the NATO Warsaw Summit have already resulted in positive changes. Our security is guaranteed better than before. It is important to continue implementing these,” Ligi was quoted in a ministry press release on Wednesday.

The foreign ministers agreed that Russia’s provocative actions couldn’t be left unnoticed, and that NATO needed to answer with a strong message.

Ligi expressed satisfaction that the security situation in the Black Sea and Baltic Sea regions had the constant attention of the alliance.

The foreign ministers adopted a joint statement at the meeting that stressed the unity of NATO member states, the importance of collective security, and the need to guarantee stability in the alliance’s neighborhood.

The meeting was also attended by NATO Deputy Secretary General, Rose Gottemoeller, who confirmed NATO’s commitment to defending the region, and emphasized the importance of strategic communication.
