President’s advisory council member Marianne Mikko meets Permanent Secretary of Grenada’s Foreign Ministry Alva Browne

Estonian MP Marianne Mikko’s visit to the Southern Caribbean ended with a visit to Grenada where she met with the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Grenada, Alva Browne.

The member of the President’s advisory council introduced Estonia’s aim to gain a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for 2020-2021, also emphasising the common interests of small countries to maintain international law, hinder global threats and reach sustainable development goals.

Both Estonia and Grenada would like to see the Security Council turn more attention to “horizontal issues”, e.g. the impact of climate change on security and the empowerment of women in conflict resolution. “Small countries have a similar understanding of security. It is based on will to cooperate and empathy for others in similar situations,” Mikko noted.

The visit to Grenada continued with a meeting between Estonia’s special diplomatic envoy Margus Kolga and President of the Senate Chester Humphrey and Speaker of the House of Representatives Michael Pierre who discussed the importance of solidarity between states in maintaining a stable environment for development and global and regional security. The heads of both chambers pointed out a plan to implement a paperless parliament.

After the visit, Marianne Mikko travelled to Strasbourg for the meeting of the Council of Europe. The delegation led by Margus Kolga continued the trip to Barbados.
