According to President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö, tension has risen to an unwelcome level between the West and Russia. "Maintaining the lines of communication and dialogue open is very important. Therefore it would be necessary for the EU to clarify the position of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in its sanctions legislation".
“What does Finland need in order to overcome its current challenges? Commitment. The stronger the commitment of individual Finns to their undertakings, the better we will fare as a nation,” said President Sauli Niinistö as he closed the third Kultaranta Talks. Commitment also means a commitment to the community, “whatever way suits one best” said the President.
