Estonia considers Ukraine's territorial integrity unequivocal

01.03.2014

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet stated that Estonia considers Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity essential.

Paet said that the tense situation in Crimea is worrying. "We consider it necessary for international organizations like the European Union, the Council of Europe and the OSCE to send their observers to Crimea immediately," he said. "The observers must be granted complete access," he added.

According to Paet, what is most important, is to resolve the situation as quickly and peacefully as possible. "The conflict must be solved through peaceful negotiations," the foreign minister said.

Paet stated that Estonia is ready to resume the support of activities that will help in the  development of Ukrainian society and its state governed by the rule of law. "At present, it is important to reduce tensions in the streets and various regions and to restore public confidence in the governing power," he said.
