Tapa, 29 September 2017 – In the morning of today’s digital summit, Prime Minister Jüri Ratas, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May and President of France Emmanuel Macron visited Tapa army base, where they got an overview of the duties of Estonian soldiers and NATO's Enhanced Forward Presence battalion battle group, as well as of the armaments and infrastructure of the allies and the 1st Infantry Brigade.
“The enhanced presence of NATO forces is a decision that was made at the Warsaw Summit last summer. By now, it has been implemented for 14 months and the results have exceeded our expectations,” said Ratas and added that the allies are not only present, but also involved in defence activities, and that Estonia is offering its full support as was promised.
According to Ratas, it is very important to recognize the allies' solidarity with Estonia and work on attitudes towards NATO must continue.
