TALLINN (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Roivas held a meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk in Tallinn, where the sides discussed the future of the European Union after Brexit.
"I am pleased to say that during today's meeting with the European Council president we have agreed that Europe does not have time to wait for overcoming of a shock from Brexit, we should move beyond it. We should remember every day that our common values, such as peace, stability and economic prosperity in united Europe, are a historic achievement, which we should preserve and develop," Roivas told reporters after the meeting.
Tusk is currently making a series of short visits across EU states in preparation for the upcoming informal EU summit in Bratislava.
The Slovakian capital of Bratislava will host the meeting of 27 EU leaders, excluding UK Prime Minister Theresa May, on September 16. The participants are set to discuss the future of the bloc in light of the United Kingdom’s decision to withdraw from it.
