    Estonian PM: We must move forward with ensuring security of Baltic region

    TALLINN, Mar 09, BNS - We must move forward with ensuring our security, Estonian Prime Minister Juri Ratas said at Friday's meeting with his Latvian, Lithuanian and Polish colleagues.

    "We must continue our work to make sure that NATO reinforcements would arrive in the Baltic states as quickly as possible, should it prove necessary," Ratas said.

    Ratas noted at the meeting that largely owing to the successful collaboration with like-minded countries, friends in the European Union and allies at NATO, the life of the people of the Baltic states and Poland is better than ever before and their security solid.

    "Like in case of the recent presidency of the Council of the EU, unity is important to Estonia also in NATO. Unity is ensured by not only thinking about ourselves, but also others. NATO is engaged with the security of all allies. Estonia contributes to ensuring security in Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere," the head of government said.

    Ratas discussed issues of defense and security, current affairs of the European Union and joint energy as well as transport projects in Vilnius on Friday with the Lithuanian and Latvian heads of government, Saulius Skvernelis and Maris Kucinskis, and their Polish colleague Mateusz Morawiecki.
