Press points of Minister Soini at press conference with Foreign Ministers of Sweden, Germany and Denmark
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.
