When answering MPs questions in front of Estonian Riigikogu on Monday, the Minister of Economic Affairs and Communications Juhan Parts noted that the Rail Baltica project might be at risk from differences of positions between the participating counties, writes LETA/National Broadcasting.
He added that another risk involves the timeliness and quality of preparatory works for the railway route.
According to the minister, all three Baltic States ought to work for their common goal, and the jointly owned enterprise ought to become a clearly defined legal entity to develop and invest in the project.
“On the Baltic States’ level, the risk might entail countries’ differing positions and interests in developing their projects. During the past year, we have seen how difficult it might be to agree on common plans, particularly when these plans are becoming very clear and practical decisions have to be made,” said Parts.
