Important Visits and Meetings

The last visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs took place in February 2014, when Minister Urmas Paet went to Moscow and signed the agreements on Russian-Estonian border and maritime delimitation in Narva Bay and the Gulf of Finland with the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov.  The last meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs was held in New York on September 27, 2015, when the Minister of Foreign Affairs Marina Kaljurand had a meeting with the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov during the UN General Assembly.

In 2015, the relations between the Estonian and Russian parliaments, which had been severed for a while, were restored. Parliamentary delegation visited Moscow from 14-15 October 2015.  State Duma elections in Russia were held in September 2016 and presumably the contacts will continue in the future.

Estonia-Russia political consultations were organised in Tallinn on 20 November 2015; and in Moscow on 18 November 2016. On 6 April 2016 consular consultations were held in Moscow.
