MOSCOW, April 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has suggested creating what it sees as "an atlas of risks" for the Black Sea region, encompassing the territories of the Black Sea littoral states, the Balkans and the Caucasus, the chairman of the Russian National Committee for Black Sea Economic Cooperation (RNC BSEC), Victor Arkhipov, said on Wednesday.
“Russia attaches great importance to the work of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC),” he said. “We will chair the organization in 2016 and we have already prepared a preliminary plan of activities.”
“Among other things, Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has suggested creating an atlas of risks in the Black Sea region,” he said. “We are working on this initiative at the moment.”
Arkhipov noted the effectiveness of economic cooperation with Bulgaria, which is also a BSEC member and has been chairing the organization since January.
“We have established very good cooperation in the spheres of energy, agriculture, pharmaceutical industry and tourism,” he said. “I think that despite all difficulties, our relations will continue to develop.”
The Organization of the Black Sea Economic Co-operation (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. BSEC permanent members are Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.
