"Mentioned NATO, fears of Estonia and some other countries the Baltics on safety, but are convinced that they are absolutely groundless" — Peskov told. Kersti Kalyyulayd he did not give details of a meeting of Vladimir Putin and his Estonian colleague. The meeting which took place in the Kremlin behind closed doors lasted 2.5 hours. This in itself is unusual, the chairman of presidium of Council for foreign and defensive policy, the editor-in-chief of the "Russia in Global Policy" magazine Fedor Lukyanov says. Fedor Lukyanov the chairman of presidium the SWAP, the editor-in-chief of the "Russia in Global Policy" magazine "It is unusual because Estonia, at all great respect for this country, is not the USA, not France and not China therefore, of course, 2.5 hours of a conversation are very much, considering, so to say, rather modest agenda which between two countries exists.

"On difficult subjects spoke long, but even at the difficult moments showed mutual respect" — she said at a press conference in Embassy of Estonia following the results of a meeting. Presidents, by words Kalyyulayd, discussed issues of foreign policy, a situation in Ukraine and in Georgia. She added that Estonia already discussed an issue of ratification of the Estonian-Russian boundary treaty twice, and expressed a regret that there is no advance on this subject.
