Current issues on the European agenda were also tackled, in view of Greece taking over the Presidency of the Council of the EU in the first half of 2014, and of our country taking over the Presidency of the South East Europe Cooperation Process (SEECP). Referring to this subject, the Romanian foreign minister pointed out: “Considering the common approaches and goals, but also the fact that Greece will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2014, which will overlap at least for a while with the period in which Romania will hold the Presidency of SEECP, we convened to periodically consult each other in the European and regional affairs domain.”
