Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand (nonpartisan) and chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Sven Mikser (SDE) will speak in parliament on Thursday in the course of discussions around the country’s foreign policy.

ERR’s TV news reported that Mikser considered it important for the guarantee of Estonia’s safety that the country had the reputation of being a trustworthy ally, and that the unity of the EU and NATO remain strong.

The last time a member of the Riigikogu spoke on matters of foreign policy was in October 2015, when Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas (Reform) said that Estonia planned to keep the matter of Ukraine on the agenda, and that the necessity of sanctions against Russia had to remain an important topic in all meetings concerning foreign policy.

To work against the migration crisis, Estonia supports a comprehensive solution, which includes dealing with the origin of the crisis, the strengthening of the European Union’s outer border, and helping other EU countries in the redistribution of refugees.
