MOSCOW, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the date of the visit to Estonia was being still coordinated.
“There is no final agreement on the date. It is being coordinated when the schedules are clear. I was in Tallinn long ago when I was a high-school pupil. I liked Tallinn very much,” Lavrov said after talks with Estonian counterpart Urmas Paet on Tuesday.
“I’m pleased with getting wants and needs met. I mean that our staff should prepare the visit and make it rather intensive,” the Russian minister said.
Paet said Lavrov’s visit to Tallinn would be historical. “I’m glad that Minister Lavrov will visit Estonia at the yearend. This will be a historical event. This will be the Russian foreign minister’s first visit to Estonia,” the Estonian minister said.
“I believe that we are neighbours and shouldn’t make such pauses over mutual visits. It is necessary to hold a dialogue on non-easy issues. Of course, such visits and such talks will make it possible to find effective solutions,” Paet said.
