The ambassador emphasised that aside from official and political contacts, there is also intense and meaningful co-operation in the areas of climate, energy, the economy, and culture.

Naber stated that it is essential to speak with once voice in the EU, NATO, and the Baltic Sea region, so that we can be stronger and our views will be heard. “Considering that our primary priorities and principles are similar, updating and further developing our current co-operation structures would help to ensure security for Estonia and Lithuania, as well the well-being of their people,” Naber said in his speech during the ceremony.
