Estonia’s Foreign Minister introduced our e-government to her Slovak counterpart


Foreign Minister Keit Pentus-Rosimannus met in Slovakia with the county’s Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčák yesterday, with whom she discussed bilateral relations between the two countries, security policy and issues related to the European Union.

“Slovakia is one of the countries that has decided to raise its defence spending and this is certainly important and worthy of recognition, given the tense security situation,” Estonian Foreign Minister Pentus-Rosimannus said at the meeting. The ministers also discussed bilateral defence cooperation. Slovakia is one of the founding countries of the Cyber Defence Centre located in Estonia, the two countries also cooperate well in the training of soldiers.

According to the Estonian Foreign Minister, NATO's reaction following Russian aggression in Ukraine has been swift and appropriate. “It’s important that the momentum of implementation of decisions taken in Wales be maintained. The Alliance must be ready and able to deal with various threats and challenges,” Foreign Minister Pentus-Rosimannus said.

Bilateral relations between Estonia and Slovakia are good according to the foreign ministers, who discussed opportunities for future in-depth cooperation in the development of e-services. “Slovakia is very interested in Estonia's experiences in the field of e-governance, and hopefully in the near future, we will have the opportunity to introduce the structure of our e-government on a more in-depth level,” the Foreign Minister added.
Like Estonia, Slovakia is a member of NATO, the European Union, the OECD, and is also a member of the euro zone.
