TALLINN, August 29 (Itar-Tass) — Estonia and Russia should take measures to develop relations at the highest political level, Estonian Foreign Minister, Urmas Paet, said in an interview with Latvia’s Latvijas Avize daily on Wednesday.
He emphasized that stability and positive dynamics characterize the two countries’ current trade and economic relations.
“The number of Russian tourists visiting Estonia noticeably continues to grow. This is a positive factor,” he said.
However, there has been no progress in relations at the political level for the past several years. Therefore the Estonian diplomat stressed the importance of stepping up bilateral political relations.
Paet said he expected no fast changes as Russia “blames the Baltic states for their choosing the road towards EU and NATO.”
“Changes will take place, only when a new generation that will have no Soviet past will come into Russia’s politics,” he said.
