Black Sea Summit opens in Bucharest

05 June 2006 [11:17] - TODAY.AZ
A summit of Black Sea states opened in Bucharest today.

The presidents of Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan will explore setting up new energy routes to ensure supply stability between Central Asia and Europe.

The EU wants to diversify energy supplies after a pricing dispute between Ukraine and Russia cut supplies to Europe in January.

Also on the agenda are talks about the dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of Nagorno Karabakh. The enclave is an internationally recognized part of Azerbaijan but under de facto control of ethnic Armenian separatists.

Officials attending today's summit in the Romanian capital include Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, Armenian Robert Kocharian, and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
