Russia silent on border pact

Aug 06, 2014
From wire report

TALLINN - Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said that the situation with the Estonian-Russian border treaties is unchanged and new contacts with Russia on this issue have not taken place, reports Postimees Online.
Paet noted that in April, when the border treaties passed the first reading in the Riigikogu, the parliament expressed a willingness to move forward with the ratification process once Russia has also begun the process of ratification of treaties. “That is still valid, and no one has changed this attitude,” he told Postimees, while affirming that recently, no communication with Russia on this issue has occurred.

The foreign minister did not want to guess as to how likely it is that Russia’s ratification of the treaties could begin in the near future. “Speculation or guessing won’t yield anything. The Russian side knows perfectly well what the status of ratification of the treaties is from Estonia’s standpoint too, so that their parliamentary procedures and ratification is clearly for them to decide,” he said.

Paet and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, signed the Estonian-Russian border agreements in Moscow on Feb. 18.
