TALLINN, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— Estonia is interested in a stable dialogue with Russia, the chairman of the parliamentary commission for foreign affairs, Marko Mihkelson, told parliament during a discussion of topical foreign policy issues.
“Without a dialogue it will be impossible to shatter any myths hindering mutual understanding, just as finding solutions of the existing problems,” he said. According to the commission’s chairman, it is extremely important to maintain an effective bilateral dialogue at all levels.
Mihkelson believes that the parliamentary diplomacy has its own role in this respect.
On the other hand, he described relations with Russia as the greatest challenge for Europe.
“For Europe Russia’s firm stance against further expansion of the European Union and NATO eastwards is a great challenge,” he said, adding that Russia was trying to enhance its influence on decisions of both organizations.
