Greece takes helm of SEECP


Greece took over the Presidency of the South-East European Cooperation Process on Thursday and will remain in the post for one year.

The South-East European Cooperation Process was established in 1996 and its first summit was held on Crete on November 4, 1997.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it is the only regional cooperation format in which all Southeast European countries participate, as well as Kosovo.

The aim is to strengthen good-neighborly relations between the participants, as well as to properly prepare countries that aren’t yet members of the Euro-Atlantic institutions for integration.
