Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas will visit Finland on Friday at the invitation of Prime Minister Petteri Orpo, said a government press release on Monday.

During her visit to Helsinki, Kallas will also meet with President Sauli Niinistö.

Orpo and Kallas will discuss border security, the security situation in the Baltic Sea region and support for Ukraine, among other things.

“Our regular meetings are increasingly important in the current international situation. Close cooperation and exchange of information between Finland and Estonia are even more natural now that both countries are members of NATO,” said Orpo.

The Prime Ministers will also discuss topical EU issues before the informal European Council to be held in Granada, Spain next week (6 October). On the previous day, heads of state and government will also attend a meeting of the European Political Community in Granada.

Orpo and Kallas have met once before, in Tallinn on July 5.
