Speaking on a visit of the country last week, Estonia's Foreign Minister has called on Sri Lanka to be open to an international investigation on alleged human rights abuses.
Estonia's Foreign Minister Urmas Paet spoke to the Sunday Leader, and commented,
“Estonia, an EU member country, opened itself up for international investigations in 1991 after it gained independence from Russia (former Soviet Union), despite the fact how painful such investigations were”.
Estonia is a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council and will vote on the upcoming resolution on Sri Lanka at the next session.
