Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas said the matter of Finland joining NATO is a question only Finnish politicians and people can answer, but Estonia has had truly positive experiences as a member.

Rõivas, speaking in more than capable Finnish in Helsinki on Tuesday, said the continent's security situation has changed. For historic reasons, Estonia does not want to be left on its own, ETV reported.

Rõivas and his Finnish counterpart, Jyrki Katainen, both agreed EU should prepare new sanctions against Russia and President Vladimir Putin.

The two PMs also discussed the Balticconnector and LNG terminal issues between the countries, agreeing that the two gas markets should be connected as soon as possible.

Rõivas also met President Sauli Niinistö.
