Estonian Minister of Defense Sven Mikser met with the president Wednesday, reports National Broadcasting.

Samba-Panza stated that the security situation in the country is still fragile and a matter of concern, and may change quickly. Samba-Panza thanked Estonia for swift contribution to stabilizing the security situation in the Central African Republic and gave the Estonian delegation an overview of the security situation.
