President Kersti Kaljulaid is today on a working visit to the Republic of Poland where she and Polish President Andrzej Duda are participating in the Leaders Forum in Warsaw to discuss Polish and Estonian goals in the UN Security Council. President Andrzej Duda will pass on to our president the symbolic baton of membership in the group of the Eastern European on the UN Security Council. Poland was elected member of the UN Security Council in 2018 and 2019, while Estonia will commence its two-year membership on 1 January 2020.

The Estonian Head of State will also discuss with her Polish colleague the bilateral relations between Estonia and Poland, our cooperation in international organisations, issues of regional security and the European Union’s Eastern Partnership policy.

In the afternoon president Kaljulaid will speak at the Polish Institute of International Affairs about the Three Seas Initiative and preparations for the summit in Tallinn in June 2020. The Three Seas Initiative unites 12 EU member-states situated between the Adriatic, Baltic and Black Seas, with the European Union, Germany and the United States of America participating as partners. The initiative aims to promote dialogue and economic cooperation for development of the region’s infrastructure in the spheres of energy production, transportation and digital services.
