ANKARA, June 27. /TASS/. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will attend a meeting of the Foreign Ministerial Council of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) on July 1, a spokesman for the Turkish Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova last week said that the Turkish foreign minister had been invited to the meeting in keeping with Russia’s obligations as the organization’s president.
"All foreign ministers from the member-countries and the participating observers were invited to the BSEC meeting of foreign ministers due in Sochi on July 1," Zakharova said.
The BSEC was established on June 25, 1992 as a reginal initiative. Since May 1999, when its charter took effect, it has been a full-format international organization. The BSEC consists of Azerbaijan, Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine. Twelve countries and four organizations are present in the capacity of observers. Russia has chaired the BSEC since the beginning of 2016. Serbia will be the next president.
