Three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) have clearly signaled their desire to be outside any claimed sphere of influence including Russia, as is reflected by their joining both the NATO alliance and the European Union in 2004. We would like to remind the House that a deliberated increased tension on the part of a number of Baltic states, with previous partnerships clearly rejected by such states, and with the Commonwealth of Independent States already in place, we are skeptical about the current position and agenda being run here.
With regards to the actual partnership, we would like clarification on this point - 'key policies that are instrumental and important to the region' - what key policies exactly?

Latvian Presidency of the Baltic Partnership
Russia, your position on this matter is strange. The Baltic Partnership is not a 'sphere of influence' it is merely a group of countries that share a Sea that have common and mutual interest within the European family. Russia is duly invited to this partnership, we only aim to discuss key events that affect all of us such as the financial situation of member states and of political events.
Latvia is delighted that Denmark has accepted the invitation to join the Partnership. Latvia looks forward working with Denmark on a range of issues.
Latvia once again welcomes you to the Partnership and looks forward to hearing your thoughts on a whole host of issues and look forward in particular to Britain's view on closer European fiscal coordination.

As Chairman of the Partnership I call on Members and Associate Members to vote for or against the proposal... the end of which will result on an application to the General Assembly.
The Baltic Partnership current comprising of 7 member states bordering the Baltic Sea under the Presidency of Latvia hereby support the submission of Palestine to the United Nations if not as a full member state but as a speaking participant in the GA with full responsibility. Latvia and Finland support the creation of a Palestinian state comprising of the pre-1967 borders and the removal of illegal Israeli settlements. Latvia and Finland believe that this would lead to peace in the region and lead to further cooperation in the Middle East.
