The ESU Estonia members enjoyed another event in the series “Diplomats Talk” on March 24. This time we visited the German Embassy in Tallinn and met Mr. Schlaga, Christian-Matthias, the German Ambassador to Estonia. We were led to the meeting room on the 3rd floor of the Embassy, a nice modern building in a quiet area of the city center, where we were offered some drinks. The Ambassador gave us a brief overview of his career, the work the Embassy does nowadays, Germany-Estonia partnership and answered our questions. We would like to thank Mr. Schlaga and the German Embassy Tallinn for a very interesting meeting and fruitful talk.
