Estonia-Russia Border Treaty

We welcome the signing by Russia and Estonia of a treaty to demarcate the border between their two nations. The United States sees this as a welcome step that will be constructive for regional relations and will help Estonia and Russia move ahead from their painful past. We believe that Estonia, which the United States has continuously recognized since 1922, has taken an important step in ensuring the integrity of its borders. We look forward to completion of the process of ratification by the parliaments of both countries to bring the treaty signed today into force.
