Yesterday, at this year’s first video meeting of the Baltic cooperation format, the foreign affairs ministers of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania discussed restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, testing and the availability of vaccines in the European Union.
Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu said the Baltic States have been in close communication throughout the coronavirus crisis and this would continue this year. “With the foreign ministers of Latvia and Lithuania, we are constantly looking for ways to implement restrictions as optimally as possible to allow our citizens to move between our countries when necessary,” Reinsalu said. “We must take various measures to ensure safety and review them regularly. We affirmed we were ready to coordinate travel restrictions.”
The foreign ministers emphasised the European Union supported access to vaccines in its neighbourhood, i.e. the Eastern Partnership countries.
