On 6 July 2021, H.E. Dr Kenneth Vella, presented his letters of credence as Ambassador of Malta to Estonia to H.E. Ms Kersti Kaljulaid, President of Estonia.

In a ceremony held at the Presidential Palace in Tallinn, the Ambassador was warmly welcomed by the President of Estonia who referred to the dynamic bilateral relations between the two countries.  While being distant geographically, Malta and Estonia work well together, especially within the European Union and the United Nations (UN) frameworks and augured that this collaboration continues to grow.

While thanking the President, Ambassador Vella extended his congratulations on her recent appointment as a “Global Advocate for Every Woman Every Child” by the UN Secretary General, stating that this is indeed a timely appointment to continue enhancing the status of women and girls in society on a global level, with a primary focus on education.

The President of Estonia and Ambassador Vella briefly conversed on the challenges brought about by migration and in passing also discussed Libya.  Both concurred that these are inter-linked and remain a priority for both Malta and Estonia.  Subsequently, Ambassador Vella outlined his objectives as Malta’s Ambassador to Estonia, with a special focus on collaboration in the tourism, cyber-security, and education sectors aiming to further amplify the relations between the two countries.

Rounding off the meeting, the President of Estonia wished Ambassador Vella well in his tenure.  

The Ambassador was accompanied by his spouse as well as by Ms Deborah M. Borg, Counsellor.
