Ministry: Estonia will not sign ACTA pact today

Juhan Tere, BC, Tallinn, 26.01.2012.Print version
References of foreign media as if Estonia was planning to sign the controversial ACTA pact on Thursday together with other EU member states are not true, LETA/Postimees Online cites Estonian foreign ministry.

Mariann Sudakov from foreign ministry press service explained that since ACTA is a pact of mixed responsibility, it has to be signed by the EU and member states separately. Today ACTA will be signed by the representatives of European Commission and presiding state Denmark as well as some EU member states.

Estonia will not sign the agreement today as a government decision is needed for that. "The Estonian government will only start discussing the agreement. The agreement is open for signing till March 31, 2013," she said.
