Estonia welcomes the Icelandic Parliament’s decision to join the EU


“Estonia supports European Union enlargement in Northern Europe and welcomes the Icelandic Parliament’s decision to begin moving towards European Union accession. We hope that Iceland will soon present its application to accede to the European Union,” said Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet. “Estonia’s support is behind the acceptance of Iceland’s accession application in the Council, and we also support asking the Commission for its evaluation,” he added.

“Estonia continues to be ready to offer its aid and consult with Icelandic experts on preparations for accession,” Paet noted.

Estonia has offered Iceland its help in preparing for accession.
