Basescu: Romania, a firm supporter of all SEECP states’ EU accession

Romania is a firm supporter of the accession of all South-East European Cooperation Process (SEECP) states in the European Union, on account of their own merits, the president Traian Basescu said on Wednesday, in Istanbul, while attending the SEECP summit. “Once Slovenia acquired the quality of member state in the SEECP, the European Union’s presence in this regional cooperation body was consolidated. We hope this presence will be further strengthened by the SEECP states’ joining the European Union, on account of their own merits,” Traian Basescu said. According to a release by the Presidential Administration, the head of state further stated that Romania is eager to share the expertise it acquired during the process of joining the EU. He argued that solidarity is the core value of the SEECP, and that Romania feels compelled to act in solidarity with all member states, in their effort of European integration.

He added that Romania supported the Chisinau democratic administration’s efforts to approach the European structures. As far as NATO is concerned, the president argued that the open doors’ policy, the extension of the Alliance and the development of partnerships with neighbouring states had a decisive contribution to ensuring a climate of peace and security in Europe. He further pointed out that, at present, of the 11 SEECP member states, six are already NATO members.
