“The Estonian economy is the envy of the world,” Krach said, under the government, and narrowly on the importance of the agreement. Estonia`s entrepreneurial spirit and high-tech DNA make it the ideal partner for the United States in the field of science and technology, especially in this time of rapid change. Today`s agreement will be essential to address not only the pandemic, but also the myriad economic and national security challenges. We appreciate Estonia`s leadership as an early member of the Clean Network and the Blue Dot Network. I`m sure for the U.S. and E-stonia, the best will be yet to come. All EU member states and EFTA countries signed the “Government Declaration” in Tallinn at the ministerial meeting held in conjunction with the government`s ministerial conference on 6 October 2017. The unanimous agreement was reached in the presence of Andrus Ansip, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Single Market. This is a new political commitment at EU level on priorities that will ensure citizens have quality, user-oriented digital public services, as well as transparent cross-border public services to businesses. Article 51 of the United Nations Charter states that “nothing in this Charter affects the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence when an armed attack is perpetrated against a member of the United Nations.” An international agreement that limits one country`s legitimate reasons for declaring war on another on juice ad bellum.
In addition to bilateral non-aggression pacts, multilateral agreements were concluded during the 20th century, which set new restrictions against war. The principles of juice ad bellum are: correct authority and public statement, only correct cause/intention, probability of success, proportionality and last instance. The United States and Estonia have a strong partnership to build shared prosperity through cooperation in countries on security, science and technology and trade. This new agreement will continue to support partnerships between high-level researchers, public and private research institutes and industry. It will strengthen cooperation on common research and innovation objectives, including environmental protection, health security and digital governance, and improve intellectual property protection in both countries. Foreign Minister Reinsalu said of the agreement: “We appreciate the willingness of the United States to advance scientific and technological cooperation with us.
