"Kersti Kaljulaid: Let's talk about the Nordic Benelux", lsm.lv

As the Baltic states have so many similarities, they need to work closely together. Instead of using loaded terms like "Nordic" or "Baltic", Estonia's new president wants to talk about a "Nordic Benelux", referring to likely-minded countries on the northern rim of the EU, Estonia's president Kersti Kaljulaid said in an interview with LTV's Imants Frederiks Ozols.


Watch the interview covering matters like Kaljulaid's work experience in EU institutions, as well as the economic differences between Latvia and Estonia and more.

Kaljulaid came to Latvia last weekend on what was her second official foreign trip as President of Estonia.

The interview took place before the vote of the Belgian Walloon parliament to nix a free trade deal between the EU and Canada, which has subsequently shown that even Benelux co-operation is not without its problems.
