Visit of H.E. Mr Ross Allen, British Ambassador to Estonia

On 3rd May, the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) had the honour to host H.E. Mr. Mr Ross Allen, Ambassador of British to Estonia accompanied by Ms Aranya Rauff-Nisthar, 2nd Secretary.
The high level guests were welcomed by the Commandant of the BALTDEFCOL, Brigadier General Ilmar Tamm, and members of the College Management Group and Faculty.

The visit started with a briefing session where Ambassador Allen received a general overview of the historical background, mission, and tasks of the College and learned about the various courses and academic activities conducted at the BALTDEFCOL.
During the meeting between our guests and the leadership of the college, various aspects of possible UK contributions to future BALTDEFCOL projects were discussed. Views were exchanged on an extension of cooperation between the Baltic Defence College and British authorities and military education institutions.

The United Kingdom, among several other participating nations, has historically provided valuable support and become a highly appreciated partner of the College in many areas of academic success. These connections are set to continue to grow with the United Kingdom’s historical contribution to the security of the Baltic Sea region, with a significant increase in visibility during the last decade.

AMB Ross was appointed Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Estonia in June 2021 and this was his first visit to BALTDEFCOL.
