Estonia established diplomatic relations with Togo


Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and the Foreign Minister of Togo (officially the Togolese Republic) Robert Dussey established diplomatic relations between the two countries within the framework of the UN General Assembly.

Foreign Ministers Paet and Dussey spoke about cooperation within the UN and agreed to mutually support each other’s candidacies. “Until now, small states have been under-represented in the UN Security Council,” the Estonian Foreign Minister said.

At the meeting the foreign ministers also discussed the Ebola epidemic, which has struck Africa. “Estonia is very concerned about the spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa,” Paet said. “We have supported the fight against the virus through the World Health Organisation with 100,000 euros,” he said, adding that a doctor from Estonia has gone to Liberia to help fight the spread of the Ebola virus.

The Togolese Republic is located in West Africa. During the years 1884 to 1914, Togo was a German colony and thereafter governed by Britain and France. Independence from France was granted in 1960.

Togo’s capital is Lome and the country’s population is 6 million. The official state language is French.
