Tomorrow 9 November, on the invitation of the German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu will attend the ceremony marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in Berlin.
After a reception for foreign ministers, a ceremony organised by Berlin Mayor Michael Müller is held at the Brandenburg Gate, where Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, will give a speech.
“The anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall is also cause for celebration in Estonia – alongside the freedom aspirations of the Baltic States and our neighbours, it was the beginning of the end of the communist regime. The willpower and values that united Europe 30 years ago are as needed today. I am very happy to celebrate this significant moment with my German, Baltic and other European colleagues, and stand for European unity,” Reinsalu said ahead of the visit.
