The Sri Lankan government has reached out to Estonia in an attempt to strengthen trade, tourism and investments between the countries, reported ColomboPage.
The announcement comes after a high-level 24-member business delegation from Estonia toured Sri Lanka last week, the first visit of its kind.
Meeting with Sri Lankan Minister for Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa, Estonia's Foreign Minister said,
"Estonia's strategically favourable location and the modern infrastructure and technology in our ports would allow Sri Lankan entrepreneurs to arrange transit more effectively here than in most other European ports".
Estonia is currently a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council with their membership due to expire in 2015.
The country will vote on the upcoming reolution on Sri Lanka, to be presented at the council's next session.
