Avrupa Konseyi Genel Sekreteri Terry Davis,Karadeniz Bölgesi İşbirliğinin önemine dikkati çekti.

The Black Sea Euroregion will contribute to the dismantling of the existing dividing lines in Europe

Statement by Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe

Water has always been a means of communication and contact. Throughout history, it has brought people together, sometimes to trade, sometimes to wage war.

The Black Sea region is a huge common challenge in environmental, economic and strategic terms, but it is also a common opportunity. Closer cross-border co-operation is the aaa to meeting those challenges and opportunities and the launch of the Black Sea Euroregion will provide that platform. It will help in the reinforcement of regional cooperation in order to protect natural resources, strengthen social cohesion through joint projects in agriculture, fisheries, tourism and transport, and provide a platform for cultural cooperation and exchange.
