TALLINN - Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid on Sunday met with Latvian President Egils Levits to discuss the hybrid attack on the border between the European Union and Belarus, the situation in Afghanistan, regional infrastructure projects and cooperation in the field of green energy production.

"Estonia and Latvia currently have a good opportunity to cooperate in establishing green energy networks and production. We must act quickly, otherwise we will remain importers of green energy," Kaljulaid was quoted by spokespeople as saying. She added that there is a need for serious discussion on how to work together to adopt green technologies throughout the Nordic-Baltic region.

At the meeting in Kadriorg, the heads of state also discussed further cooperation regarding Afghanistan and the human rights violations that are already taking place there, as well as the ongoing hybrid attacks on the border between Belarus and the European Union, including Latvia. The situation and future prospects of the European Union's Eastern Partners were also discussed, as was the Three Seas Initiative, which is a good tool for the development of our region.
