Lithuanian Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius had a phone conversation with his Estonian counterpart Taavi Roivas on Monday and congratulated him on his recent re-election, the Lithuanian government said in a statement on Monday.

"Let me wish you successful formation of a new government," Butkevičius said.

Roivas' Reform Party received almost 28 percent of the vote in the recent general elections and will have 30 seats in Estonia's 101-seat parliament. The incumbent ruling Reform Party beat a pro-Kremlin party amid ongoing tension over Russia's threat.

Analysts warn, however, it might be difficult to form a ruling coalition in Estonia.
