No 430-E

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet opened Estonia’s new embassy building in Kiev, Ukraine.

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said that after many years of having an embassy in Ukraine, the Estonian Embassy now has a newly renovated embassy building. “The new building will house both the embassy rooms and the consulate, which used to be in different places. This will simplify the work of the representation and make it easier for people to communicate with the embassy and the consulate,” said Paet.

The foreign minister also emphasised that relations between Estonia and Ukraine are good and close co-operation is done in many areas. “It is significant that we are opening our new embassy building in Kiev this year, when we are also celebrating 20 years of diplomatic relations between our countries,” said Paet.

The foreign minister added that the development of co-operation between the two countries has been boosted by the intergovernmental commission started in 2010, which aims to discuss bilateral co-operation in the economic, educational, technological, and science sectors.

The foreign minister confirmed that Ukraine is still a priority development co-operation partner for Estonia and that Estonia supports Ukraine’s integration with the European Union. “We are prepared to share our reform experiences with Ukraine and Ukrainian officials are welcome to attend training at the Estonian Centre of Eastern Partnership,” he added.

The Estonian Embassy and Consulate are located in Kiev at the address Pushkinska 43-b. Estonia is represented in Ukraine by Ambassador Sulev Kannike. The embassy in Ukraine also represents Estonia in Moldova.
