Estonia and Finland on Wednesday called for a common foreign policy of the European Union (EU) towards Russia, according to news reaching here from Tallinn.

A strong EU is in the interests of both Estonia and Finland, Alexander Stubb, visiting Finnish Foreign Minister, told reporters after meeting with his Estonian counterpart Urmas Paet in Tallinn.

If the EU wants to be an authorized power on the international stage, it should have a common foreign policy especially on ties with Russia, Stubb said.

EU member states' policy towards Russia may vary due to their own situations, but such policy should be in conformity with the EU's collective approach, he said.

The two ministers also exchanged views on such issues as bilateral ties, the EU's new constitution, the Georgian situation, Kosovo and Afghanistan.
