Ratas meets with Boris Johnson in London (Video)

Prime Minister Jüri Ratas (Centre) met with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London on Tuesday, becoming the first EU head of government to meet with the U.K.’s new prime minister in person.

The Government Communication Unit previously announced that at their meeting, the two heads of state would discuss bilateral Estonian-British relations, including cooperation in the defense and security policy field, as well as cyber-cooperation and topical EU-related matters.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Reinsalu had previously told the BBC that while the “reality” was the EU withdrawal agreement including the Irish border backstop that had been jointly agreed by the remaining 27 EU member states, the need nevertheless remained for continued dialogue in the coming weeks in order to avoid a no-deal Brexit.
