History

Both countries were previously part of the Soviet Union.

Agreements

Many of the agreements between the two countries are trilateral with Latvia as the three Baltic states.

In 2002, the three Baltic states signed a free trade agreement in 1992.[1] However, this has been superseded with all three countries joining the European Union.

In 2017, the two countries along with Latvia, signed a rail agreement. The agreement is a precondition for a possible high speed railway between the states.[2]
