MOSCOW, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Bulgaria will take over a six-month presidency of the Organisation of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation as of January 1, 2014, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday after a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the organisation’s member-states in Armenia’s capital, Yerevan.
“There was an exchange of opinions on pressing issues - better efficiency, prospects for further development and the strengthening of the organisation’s role,” the ministry said. “Ministers noted that the Organisation of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation is the only full-format international organisation uniting member-states of the Black Sea region that helps develop mutually advantageous cooperation, friendly relations and strengthen confidence and stability in the Black Sea region.”
Delegates confirmed “member-states’ intention to expand and deepen multifaceted economic cooperation,” the ministry said. They highly evaluated Armenia’s presidency over the Organisation of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation in July-December.
The meeting in Yerevan brought together foreign ministers from Armenia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Albania, Greece, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, foreign ministry officials from Azerbaijan and Ukraine, observer states and partners of the Organisation of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation. The Russian delegation was led by Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya.
