Statement of Minister Soini at the Barents Euro-Arctic Council
Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Speeches, 10/19/2017
... We need to remember that Barents cooperation is unique. It provides a useful platform for the people of the Barents region, including indigenous peoples, to cooperate on those issues that have specific interest and meaning to them. Through its working groups and projects, this cooperation has a strong people-to-people dimension. That is the back-bone of its success.
