The Black Sea region must remain a stable and predictable area, says the president of Romania

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis asserts that the Black Sea region must remain a stable and predictable area, pointing out that it needs a better collaboration in the region. „The key is overcoming the historical animosities and identifying the complementarity of interests for each of the countries in the region” the head of state says in a message sent on the occasion of opening the works of the programme „Security in the Black Sea Region – Common Challenges, Sustainable Future”. „The economic dimension must not be underestimated”, said Romanian President. „The Black Sea region represents the entry gate for the oil and gas sent from Central Asia and the Caucasus to Europe. Thus, the security of the energy infrastructure in this sector becomes critical to the energy security of Europe”. (RADIO ROMANIA reports)
