The President of the Republic met the Minister of Defence

President Arnold Rüütel this afternoon met Defence Minister Margus Hanson to discuss with him the principles and structure of our National Defence Development Plan 2010.

Defence Minister Hanson informed the President of the present state of drawing up the basis and principles of the National Defence Development Plan. The President of the Republic expressed his opinion that development of defence forces was only natural and inevitable, however, he deemed it necessary that our capability of independent national defence be developed and dealt with in the development plan.

Since this document concerns important issues of our national defence, the President of the Republic in the near future will convene the National Defence Council.
