The United Kingdom’s ambassador to Estonia, Theresa Bubbear, said on Wednesday that the relationship of Britain and Estonia was not going to change anytime soon.

Bubbear told ERR’s “Aktuaalne Kaamera” newscast on Wednesday that parallel to the United Kingdom’s exit negotiations with the European Union, negotiations about future relations would be held.

The ambassador confirmed that relations between the UK and Estonia would not change anytime soon, saying that the two countries had a great bilateral relationship. Bubbear also pointed to the British troops and military equipment arriving in Estonia with NATO’s increased presence in the Baltic states.

For businesses active in the UK, nothing would change. Apart from the fact that Estonia and the UK would not sit in the same meetings in Brussels anymore, much would remain the same.

British prime minister Theresa May signed her letter to President of the European Council Donald Tusk on Tuesday. The latter received May’s formal announcement that the UK is leaving the EU on Wednesday.
