BC, Tallinn, 14.09.2017.Print version
Estonian Foreign Minister Sven Mikser at the meeting with his Danish counterpart Anders Samuelsen expressed hope in cooperating with Denmark to support the fight against corruption in Ukraine on September 14th, informs LETA/BNS.

"Reducing corruption in Eastern Partnership countries is our common goal," Mikser was quoted by spokespeople as saying. "We would like to participate in a project led by Denmark in Ukraine so that corruptibility would decrease in the country and the country would stay on the European path," he added.

The topics discussed at Thursday's meeting were the relationship between Estonia and Denmark, the EU Eastern Partnership initiative and the situation in Ukraine as well as the contribution of Danish soldiers to the increased presence of the allies in Estonia.

According to Mikser, the contribution of Denmark to the allied presence in Estonia is very important to the country. "Estonia's relationship with Denmark is very good and it is also proven by the fact that 200 Danish soldiers will arrive here at the start of next year to support the presence of allies in Estonia," Mikser said. The Danish unit will replace a French unit at the start of 2018 as part of NATO's enhanced forward presence.

The Danish minister also expressed interest in Estonia's experience with dealing with false news and disinformation. They also discussed Estonia's EU presidency and Brexit.

From Estonia the Danish minister proceeded to Latvia.
