Prime Minister Andrus Ansip had dinner on Monday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and two other prime ministers at the Meseberg Palace near Berlin.
The prime ministers of Holland and Denmark were also present to exchange ideas on the state and future of the EU economy.
One of the main topics of discussion, according to the Cabinet press office, was Greece and the second financial assistance plan. The EU is ready to help only if Greece is willing to help itself, Ansip said later in a statement.
He continued, calling for strong financial discipline, a common market with unobstructed movement of services, and well-developed infrastructure.
"Estonia would like to see the new multi-year budget plan focus more toward developing cross-border connectedness, " Ansip said.
