Estonia's ruling coalition decided on May 29 to let the government decide how it wished to handle the controversy surrounding the Red Army monument at Tonismagi in Tallinn.
Jaanus Tamkivi, chairman of the parliamentary Reform Party faction, told BNS that the coalition council felt that it was difficult to reach a consensus on the monument controversy.
"Unfortunately it seems at present that there are no longer any good solutions," he said.
"The view of the coalition council was that the government would deal with the issue and decide whether to call a committee or round table and decide who should be represented there and what the aims of that activity would be," he told BNS.
