Today in Tallinn, President Kersti Kaljulaid met with the President of Poland Andrzej Duda, who came to Estonia for the Three Seas Summit. The discussion focused on the outcome of the summit, bilateral relations between the two countries and co-operation in NATO.

According to President Kaljulaid, the pandemic has affected all our societies and economies, and the Three Seas Initiative, together with the European Union's recovery plan, can help us recover. As one of the initiators of the Three Seas Initiative, the Polish Head of State thanked Estonia for the successful and productive leadership of the Three Seas.

Speaking about security in the region and co-operation in NATO, President Kaljulaid said that she was pleased that the Polish Air Force was in Ämari from January to April and that they were always welcome back to Estonia.

The situation in Belarus was discussed at length and both Heads of State jointly agreed that Belarusians deserve democratic and free elections.

Cooperation on the establishment of energy and transport connections and economic cooperation were also discussed at the meeting. Poland is Estonia's most important foreign trade partner among Central European countries, and several Estonian companies have already entered the Polish market. Today, the President of Poland will also open the re-established Polish-Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
