President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid, who is paying an official visit to Greece, met on Thursday with Greek President Pavlopoulos at the Presidential mansion.
Kaljulaid said that Greece and Estonia share many common values and positions within the European Union.
She expressed her support for strenghtening solidarity to address present-day challenges, both in the fiscal-financial sector and in the management of migration flows. Kaljulaid said that she supports EU enlargement but only on terms that ensure the respect of European values by the candidate member-states.
Pointing to the difficult task faced by Greece in the management of the refugee and migration crisis, Kaljulaid said she was in favour of achieving the goals of EU asylum policy and underlined the importance of this plan because, as she said, nobody knows where the next crisis will strike.
She also referred to Estonia's contribution to the activities of the EU border agency Frontex and expressed her country's intention to continue cooperating with Greece in this direction, while pointing to the strong interest shown by many Estonians for investments in Greece.
