Foreign ministers from the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) organization, who gathered for a regular session in Greece's second-biggest city Thessaloniki on Friday, confirmed “willingness among member states to expand and deepen multilateral economic cooperation within BSEC, as well as their intention to develop equal and mutually-beneficial cooperation with international partners,” the ministry said after the meeting, noting that participants positively assessed Greece’s six-month chairmanship of the organization from July to December.
Starting January, Moldova will take over the rotating presidency of BSEC, uniting the countries surrounding the Black Sea - Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.
Established in 1992, BSEC is an inter-governmental organization created with the aim to foster interaction and harmony among its member states, as well as to ensure peace, stability and prosperity encouraging friendly and good-neighbourly relations in the Black Sea region.
