TALLINN – A meeting between Estonian President Alar Karis and his Moldovan counterpart Maia Sandu in Paris, on the fringes of the event marking the 75th anniversary of UNESCO, focused on Moldova's reform process and the country's closer integration with the European Union.

The two heads of state also addressed the security situation in the region.

The Estonian president took an interest in Moldova's reform agenda and expressed the hope that, in a situation where political forces linked to President Sandu have a majority and a strong mandate in parliament, Moldova's integration with the European Union will move forward rapidly, spokespeople for the president said.

"Estonia supports Moldova's efforts to reform society, fight corruption and improve the business environment, and we are ready to share our experience in this area and in building a digital state," Karis said.

The Estonian head of state commended the president of Moldova for effectively resolving the recent energy crisis.
