Finland is coordinating cooperation between the Nordic countries and Baltic states in the Nordic–Baltic Eight (NB8) format in 2021. The second foreign ministerial meeting of the year will be held on Wednesday 2 June. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the meeting will be held virtually.

The topics on the agenda of the meeting, chaired by Minister for Foreign Affairs of Finland Pekka Haavisto, will include topical OSCE and UN matters and other foreign and security policy questions.

“The Nordic countries and Baltic states are among Finland’s most important groups of reference. It is important for us to exchange views on topical questions with close partners also now that meetings are held virtually. Recent events in Belarus and Ukraine will definitely be brought up in the discussions, and the results of the Arctic Council’s Ministerial meeting in Reykjavik will also be handled,” says Foreign Minister Haavisto.
