Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 180
The head of the OSCE ‘s mission to Estonia, Herbert Grubmayr, told Estonian prime minister Tiit Vahi yesterday that, in the mission’s view, there are no violations of human rights in Estonia. Grubmayr expressed regret that U.S. secretary of state Warren Christopher had mentioned Estonia as a potential crisis area in his recent policy speech in Stuttgart on security in Europe. "Such statements require us to refute groundless accusations against Estonia," Grubmayr was cited as saying. He was referring to Russian accusations that Estonia violates human rights. Grubmayr is now completing his tour of duty in Estonia. (BNS, September 26)
