U.S. Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will arrive in Estonia on Saturday, where he will meet with Prime Minister Jüri Ratas and give a joint press conference together with him, the Government Office confirmed.

The delegation of U.S. congressmen, led by Ryan, will also include Reps. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), Brian Mast (R-Fla.), Don Bacon (R-Neb.), Martha Roby (R-Ala.), Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), Ron Kind (D-Wis.) and Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.).

Subjects to be discussed at the delegation's meeting with Ratas include Estonian-U.S. defense cooperation, the security situation and foreign policy challenges in the world.

Ryan, aged 47, was re-elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in January, a position that is second in the U.S. presidential line of succession following Vice President.

In 2012, he was picked as Republican nominee Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential running-mate.
