You Don’t Talk Much, But It’s Good To Talk To You

Since arriving in Tallinn nearly three months ago, I have had a number of conversations with Estonians.  I have talked to presidents and ministers, politicians and economists, business professionals, young entrepreneurs and diplomats, members of my Estonian Embassy and household teams, and of course young people.  Most of you are not big talkers, but when you speak, you sound like you mean it.  And when you voice an opinion, you sound like you know what you are talking about.  And you make your words count by acting on your convictions from Afghanistan to Moldova, from Iraq to Haiti.  The limits of Estonian foreign policy engagement are rarely determined by the size of the country.  It is good, and worthwhile, talking to you.
