24.04.2017

President of the Riigikogu Eiki Nestor and his colleagues from Bulgaria and Austria will sign a declaration ensuring close cooperation between the three successive presidencies of the EU in Bratislava on Monday.

“The country that holds the presidency must be an impartial seeker of compromises between all member states,” Nestor said according to a Riigikogu press release. “The issues faced by the EU today are rather complicated, and it is not always possible to find a solution to them during the six-month presidency period.
