Sweden Takes Over Presidency of Baltic Sea Council

Published måndag 3 juli 2006 kl 11.27

On Saturday Sweden took over as President of the Council of Baltic Sea States.

In a press statement, Foreign Minister Jan Eliasson calls for strong regional cooperation to deal with such issues as improving the Baltic environment, and fighting organized crime, not least the trafficking in human beings. In addition, Sweden’s priorities for its one year presidency include promoting democracy and human rights in the region, and reducing barriers to trade and investment.

The Council of Baltic Sea States was established in 1992. Besides the countries bordering the sea, it also includes Iceland, Norway, and the European Commission.
