Vabariigi Presidendi avalik loeng Norra Rahvusvaheliste Suhete Instituudis „Turvalisus Läänemere piirkonnas – Eesti vaade” http://www.president.ee/et/ametitegevus/koned/13660-2017-10-19-20-02-59 http://www.president.ee/et/ametitegevus/koned/13660-2017-10-19-20-02-59 Ekstellentsid, daamid ja härrad!

Esmalt soovin ma tänada Norra Rahvusvaheliste Suhete Instituuti selle avaliku loengu korraldamise eest. Usun, et peale ametlike kohtumiste ja neljasilmavestluste, mis on alati minu visiitide osaks, on sama oluline, et mul oleks võimalik edastada Eesti seisukohti ka laiemale avalikkusele. Loodan anda sel loengul avarama pildi sellest, millisena näeb Eesti Läänemere piirkonna julgeolekuolukorda ja väljakutseid, samuti sellest, milline on olnud – ja tegelikult on endiselt – Eesti lähenemine oma rahvusliku julgeoleku tagamisel.

Põhimõttelised valikud, mille Eesti langetas 1990. aastate alguses oma julgeolekupoliitika põhialuste kujundamisel, on suuresti selle katastroofi peegeldus, mis Eestit Teise maailmasõja ajal tabas.

Closing keynote by the President of the Republic at “Health in the Digital Society. Digital Society for Health.” http://www.president.ee/en/official-duties/speeches/13659-closing-keynote-by-the-president-of-the-republic-at-health-in-the-digital-society-digital-society-for-health http://www.president.ee/en/official-duties/speeches/13659-closing-keynote-by-the-president-of-the-republic-at-health-in-the-digital-society-digital-society-for-health Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished participants of the concluding session of eHealth conference!

First, I sincerely congratulate you for these three days of wise discussions, inspiring exhibition and fruitful meetings about health in the digital society. It is of utmost importance to understand what digital society can offer to improve well-being of people in Europe and beyond.

Indeed, one may ask, what will change now, after this conference in the life of a 60-year-old lady in Tartu, Southern Estonia or somebody else, let's say, man in Rouen, France? Perhaps what they both expect from life is to enjoy it happily and healthily. As WHO has phrased it in the Preamble to its Constitution 71 years ago – people do expect a physical, mental and social well-being. It is no different in digital society. Human dignity comes before digital.

President of the Republic Public lecture at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs "Security in the Baltic Sea region – an Estonian perspective" http://www.president.ee/en/official-duties/speeches/13654-president-of-the-republic-public-lecture-at-the-norwegian-institute-of-international-affairs-qsecurity-in-the-baltic-sea-region-an-estonian-perspectiveq http://www.president.ee/en/official-duties/speeches/13654-president-of-the-republic-public-lecture-at-the-norwegian-institute-of-international-affairs-qsecurity-in-the-baltic-sea-region-an-estonian-perspectiveq Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen!

First of all I would like to thank the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs for organizing and hosting this public lecture. I do believe that in addition to all the official meetings and tête-à-tête talks that I always have on my visits, it is equally important for me to have opportunities to forward Estonian views also to wider audiences. And I hope to use this lecture to give a wider overview on how Estonia sees the current security situation and challenges in the Baltic Sea region. And what has been – and for that matter still is – the general Estonian approach to national security.

The conceptual choices that Estonia made in the early 1990's in establishing the main principles of Estonian security policy are largely a reflection of the disaster that struck Estonia during the Second World War.
