20 December 2016 President of the Riigikogu Eiki Nestor sent his condolences to the President of the Bundestag Norbert Lammert on the occasion of the truck ramming attack in Berlin that involved numerous victims.
“We are deeply shocked by the news from Germany last night where a man drove a truck into a Christmas market in the heart of Berlin, killing and injuring innocent people. Shattering the notion of peaceful Christmas time, this was an attack against all of us, against everything we believe in and hold dear,” Nestor wrote.
“We firmly stand together with Germany at this heartbreaking moment. We will not let this cowardly act break our belief in the values we share,” Nestor added. “On behalf of the Estonian Parliament and myself, I would like to express our deepest condolences to the families affected by this tragic attack. We are grieving with you and wish a quick recovery to everyone injured.”
