Presidents of Estonia and Finland praised good relations in Helsinki – Niinistö: Relationship is “beautiful like between a brother and a sister”

The European Union is vital, particularly to smaller countries, Finnish President Sauli Niinistö stated in a press conference with Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid in Helsinki on 7 March. Ms Kaljulaid, who was on a two-day state visit in Finland, agreed with Niinistö and said that people forget how much the EU has given us. The two presidents also reassured those concerned about US President Donald Trump or the future of NATO. Mr Niinistö said he is concerned about the global security situation where tensions have risen after Russia’s annexation of Crimea three years ago. During the visit, the two presidents discussed, among others, economic collaboration between the two countries, security in the Baltic Sea region, current EU affairs and relations with Russia and the United States.
