Turkish and Estonian foreign ministers met in Tallinn recently as Turkey pushes for integration into the European Union. This comes on the heels of Ankara’s recent purchase of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system from the Russian Federation, and the subsequent refusal of the United States to sell Turkey the stealthy F-35 fighter.

“Turkey is our important partner in security policy issues, both bilaterally and in NATO,” Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu said, highlighting Turkey’s membership in the Tallinn-based NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence and its contribution to NATO’s Baltic air policing in the past, reported The Baltic Times.

“As we are both NATO border countries, close relations are especially important, since we can help each other understand our respective neighbourhoods and regions,” he added.

“Our economic ties have strengthened recently, especially in terms of tourism, but there is potential for increased cooperation in other fields as well.”

Turkey’s desire to become a member of the European Union was discussed with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, reported the Estonian government.
