MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. An Estonian parliamentary delegation arrives on Wednesday in Moscow to discuss at the Russian State Duma lower house ways to develop a bilateral parliamentary dialogue after a three-year pause.
According to the deputy head of the Duma committee for CIS, Eurasian integration and ties with compatriots, Tatyana Moskalkova, the focal point of the discussion will be ratification a border treaty.
Parliamentarians will also discuss ways to avoid double taxation. "We expect that our contacts will contribute to restoration of a high level of trade between Russia and Estonia," the Russian parliamentarian said. She said humanitarian issues would also be on the agenda.
"We need to move forward. We are bordering states, neighbouring countries and that is why it is so important to develop cooperation. A good neighbor is sometimes better than a distant relative," Moskalkova said.
The previous contacts of this level between Russian and Estonian parliamentarians were in 2012.
