22 November, Estonian Ambassador to Switzerland Merle Pajula presented her credentials to President of the Swiss Confederation Ignazio Cassis.
In the conversation following the presentation ceremony, Ambassador Pajula and President Cassis discussed continued support to Ukraine, and the good relations of Estonia and Switzerland, especially in international organisations.
“We are both strong countries standing up for transparency and democracy, and I would like to congratulate Switzerland for becoming a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council in 2023,” Pajula told Cassis. “Switzerland’s defence of the values that we cherish is also demonstrated by the support it provides to Ukraine, both as humanitarian aid and political support, including in the UN,” Pajula added.
