“Warm wishes to FM Eva-Maria Liimets and the Government and people of Estonia as they celebrate their National Day,” tweeted Jaishankar.
He further assured his counterpart of opening the Indian Mission in Estonia
“Opening our resident Embassy will take our ties even further,” he added.
The decision to open the Indian Mission in Estonia was taken by the Union Cabinet in 2021 to strengthen ties.
The decision had been awaited since 2013, when Estonia set up its embassy in Delhi, while India has dealt with it through its embassy in neighbouring Finland.
India and Estonia will also serve together in the Security Council next year.
From 1918 to 1920, Estonia was caught in the War of Independence against Soviet Russia and on 24th February 1918 it declared statehood, which is commemorated as its National Day. (ANI)
