TALLINN - Chairman of the foreign affairs committee of the Estonian parliament Marko Mihkelson took part on Tuesday in a video meeting of chairs of the foreign affairs committees of the parliaments of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland to exchange information and coordinate activities in relation to the security crisis on the borders of Belarus.

Mihkelson underscored that with the hybrid attack organized by the Belarusian regime intensifying, constant efficient exchange of information and strong cooperation are crucial.

"The unity of the member states of the European Union and of the allies is of key importance -- we uniformly condemn the activities by the Belarusian regime and fend off any attempts to sow distrust and discord between member states," he said. "We stand in solidarity with Poland, Latvia and Lithuania and we're carefully monitoring these developments."

The chairs of the foreign affairs committees made a joint statement last week in relation to the situation on the Poland-Belarus border. The next meeting between the committee chairs will be held on Friday.
