Croatian delegation attends CEI meeting in Bucharest
ZAGREB, Nov 12 (Hina) - A Croatian delegation, led by minister without portfolio Bianca Matkovic, took part in a meeting of foreign ministers from countries making up the Central European Initiative (CEI), in Bucharest on Thursday.
The Croatian delegation said at the meeting that Croatia remained committed to political dialogue with all political partners both on the regional level and throughout Europe.
Matkovic said that the CEI, as the first regional political forum in Central and Southeast Europe, had in the last 20 years become an important factor in the promotion of regional dialogue.
Challenges such as the economic crisis, organised crime, energy problems or environmental protection underscore the need for the member-countries to continue with intensive communication among themselves, Matkovic said.
