Well, things do happen in life, as we know.
On Friday I was appointed Foreign Minister of Sweden in a move that was widely seen as somewhat surprising.
And in many ways it was. But when asked, while it wasn't entirely easy to say yes, it would have been impossible to say no.
Estonia is lucky to have Bildt as the foreign minister of one of its largest economic partners, not to mention political allies. Bildt recently congratulated Estonia on its election of Toomas Hendrik Ilves as president and wrote one of the more moving tributes to Lennart Meri when he died in March. Along with Tarja Halonen, Bildt gave a speech at a memorial on the day of Meri's funeral in Tallinn.
In other words, he's a staunch ally. I wonder if he'll keep up blogging.
