TALLINN - Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves has opened a new pedestrian border checkpoint, Narva-2. The checkpoint is located by the Narva River, which separates Estonia’s Narva and Russia’s Ivangorod.
“The better neighbors know each other, the more mutual understanding they have,” the president said at the opening ceremony. “A good fence makes good neighbors,” he added.
Initially, the checkpoint will service only the residents of Narva and Ivangorod.
