Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid met with Icelandic President Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson in Tallinn on Monday.

"I met in Kadriorg today with Icelandic President Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson, who was vacationing together with his family in Estonia over the weekend," Kaljulaid wrote on social media.

"The special relationship between Iceland and Estonia, as well as Iceland's role in the restoration of Estonia's independence, is well known to all of us, and so we spoke at our meeting about how small countries can make important steps in international politics," said the Estonian head of state. "We also spoke about cooperation between Nordic and Baltic countries, the opportunities presented by digital society and the health of both countries' economies."

Kaljulaid added that she had also inquired how Iceland's famed national soccer team was doing. "It turned out that a crucial match with Croatia is coming up soon so I promised to get some intelligence for them at tomorrow's game in Lilleküla," she said, referring to Tuesday's scheduled friendly between Estonia and Croatia.

Jóhannesson began his four-year term as President of Iceland on Aug. 1, 2016.
