On the eve of the NATO Summit in Warsaw

For Poland, Estonia is not only an important partner in the economic, political or security areas. Today, we can confirm we are linked by strong bonds of friendship, emphasized Prime Minister Beata Szydło in a statement to the press delivered together with the Estonian head of government.  As the Prime Minister added, the Wednesday's talks concentrated mainly on the upcoming NATO Summit. We want the conclusions of the summit to confirm that the security of Europe, including our region - Poland and Estonia - is to be reinforced. We have ambitious goals and believe the NATO Summit in Warsaw will bring good results, said Prime Minister Szydło.

Polish-Estonian economic cooperation and a common position on Brexit

Joint infrastructure projects funded under the EU programmes, including Via Baltica project, were also the subject of Polish-Estonian talks. As pointed out by Prime Minister Szydło, Poland wants to set up new fields of cooperation and may follow the example of Estonia in areas such as e-government, digitisation and advanced technologies.

Discussions during the Polish-Estonian meeting addressed also issues of cooperation related to security, defence and the Eastern Partnership. Discussed topics included also problems of the current European agenda, such as the migration crisis and the biggest challenge facing the EU today, i.e. a referendum on the UK exit from the European Union. We present the same position, we want UK to stay in the EU. This is extremely important for the development of the EU stability and viability, as well as an economic outlook, said Prime Minister Beata Szydło.
