"Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia can be a wall to defend the European Union", Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Tudose said on Tuesday at a high-level meeting with the leaders of the three states. The summit was held in Varna, Bulgaria, where Romanian, Bulgarian and Greek Prime Ministers, together with the President of Serbia, discussed bilateral and regional cooperation.
The Balkans must become a model of stability, prosperity and peace for Europe, said Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov at the end of the quadrilateral meeting in Varna. According to him, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia will form a group that will coordinate itself and whose voice will be much better heard at European level.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić also believes that the four countries can do many things together for the well-being of their own citizens. And Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras believes that the group of the four countries can play a key role for the stability, peace and prosperity of the entire Balkan region.
Romania, Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia are in a very pragmatic partnership, the Head of the Romanian Executive, Mihai Tudose, concluded, and until the upcoming meeting, which will be held in Belgrade, this group aims to achieve some concrete objectives.
"There is a need for coordination because we are talking about common infrastructure projects, but we also have national projects, and coordination of national projects is also very important to develop a network below the international ones or the major European corridors, that can allow local and regional economic exchanges specific to the communities living on the border, "said Prime Minister Mihai Tudose.
At a joint government meeting, the Romanian and Bulgarian prime ministers established a permanent working mechanism, which includes bilateral monthly meetings. Discussions focused on interconnection projects in the economic, energy and transport sectors, so that the economies of the two countries become competitive in the European Union.
