Estonia to strengthen cyber security cooperation with Germany



(Xinhua/NAN) Estonian Prime Minister, Juri Ratas, on Friday said that his country expects to work together with Germany even more in the area of cyber security.

Ratas disclosed this while in a meeting with the visiting German Defense Minister, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, in his office.

Ratas said, “Thinking of the future, we have very many similar interests regarding cyber security, and this is an area where we can work together even more. “

Ratas and Kramp-Karrenbauer, however, discussed the strong historical bonds as well as very close cooperation in the modern day, between the two countries as dedicated allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), and EU.

“As partners, we both want our future Europe to be a safe and good place to live in.

“Bilateral economic cooperation is also on the agenda, the greatest growth potential lies in the cooperation of innovative start-up companies.

“We are certainly interested in Germany’s experience with high technology and innovative research and development activities,” Ratas said.

They also discussed Estonia’s role as non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2020-2021, climate issues, as well as Germany’s presidency of the Council of the EU in the second half of 2020.

Germany is a founding member of the Tallinn-based NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Center of Excellence, led a battle group of NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence in Lithuania, and participated in NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission.

Earlier, Kramp-Karrenbauer paid a visit to Lithuania to discuss bilateral cooperation and regional security, and visited German troops deployed in central Lithuania.(Xinhua/NAN)
