Ulkoministeri Soinin puheenvuoro lehdistötilaisuudessa Ruotsin, Saksan ja Tanskan ulkoministerien kanssa

First of all, I would like to thank you, my dear colleagues, for coming to Helsinki today.

  • We meet each other a lot. Just yesterday, we met in Brussels for EU foreign ministers meeting.
  • But this format: Germany and the Nordic EU countries has a special status. We have many common interests as well as challenges.
  • It is essential that we discuss and reach common understanding about the challenges that Europe and European Union is now facing. We are like-minded partners.
  • Today we discussed about China, Russia and transatlantic relations.

  • I briefed my colleagues about the upcoming Finnish EU Presidency.
