Today 13 May, Foreign Minister Eva-Maria Liimets met with the Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova Oleg Serebrian to discuss European security issues, including how Russia’s aggression in Ukraine affects the Republic of Moldova and the separatist region of Transnistria.

Foreign Minister Liimets recognised her Moldovan colleague for how his country was coping with an influx of refugees from Ukraine. “Hosting war refugees from Ukraine – a greater number than any other country in relation to its population – Moldova has shown itself to be a small country with a big heart,” Foreign Minister Liimets said. “At the meeting, I reaffirmed Estonia’s comprehensive support for Moldova in its European integration, both through long-term development cooperation projects as well as diplomatically and politically. I underlined Estonia considered it important to contribute to the stability and security of the Eastern Neighbourhood. It is also important to note that we support the territorial integrity of Moldova and its efforts to resolve the Transnistria issue,” the foreign minister added.

The foreign minister will also have a meeting with Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal on the sidelines of the Lennart Meri Conference today to discuss the quickly developing economic relations between the countries. The foreign minister will also meet with US Ambassador to the OSCE Michael Carpenter to talk about the cooperation of Estonia and the United States in the OSCE and the impact of Russia’s aggression on security cooperation and the OSCE’s future.
