By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:

Estonia and Azerbaijan may discuss possibilities for broader co-op in ports industry, Urmas Reinsalu, the Foreign Minister of Estonia, said in an exclusive interview with Trend.

“Additional cooperation in the ports industry has possibilities that can be beneficial to both countries. Pre-negotiations and meetings have been held, and in case of additional mutual interest, it will be addressed during the next Intergovernmental Commission meeting held in Estonia later in 2019,” he said.

Further, he touched upon the prospects for developing cooperation between Azerbaijan and Estonia in the sphere of tourism.

“Overall tourism numbers still have some potential for growth and we should do more to introduce our countries to each other. The Estonian travel agency Germalo is organising regular tours to Azerbaijan. The number of visas to visit Estonia has remained the same in the last couple of years. More people-to-people contacts as well as culture and business ties can all help to attract tourists,” said Reinsalu.
