(ANSA) - VILNIUS, 02 GEN - Estonia has begun its rotating presidency of the Baltic Assembly, Foreign Ministry in Tallinn announced in a press release.

According to Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu, the Estonian chairmanship will focus on the situation in Ukraine, regional security and energy security.

"Last year Russia's aggression against Ukraine fundamentally changed the situation in our region and throughout Europe. For this reason - Reinsalu said - our priority will be to ensure the security of Estonia and the entire region, secure energy supplies in these times of crisis, and continue active support for Ukraine until victory is achieved." Formed in 1990, the Baltic Assembly is a consultative institution for the promotion of political cooperation on a regional level in which representatives of the governments of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia participate. The chairmanship rotates annually between representatives of the three states.
