Minister of Agriculture Helir-Valdor Seeder stated that the negotiations between the EU ministers of agriculture and fisheries were completed successfully for Estonia, writes LETA/Postimees Online.

“We got good solutions in main issues that were subject to debate until the last moments,” he said.

 

“It is very important from Estonia’s point of view that we managed to get an exception in the so-called greening requirement. This means that in countries where forest covers more than half of the total territory, there is no need to keep some of the farming land out of use in the areas with the highest forest density,” explained the minister.
