SARAJEVO, 13 December (BelTA - FENA) - Chairman of the Council of Ministers of BiH Denis Zvizdić opened today in Sarajevo the Summit of representatives of the governments of 18 countries, member states of the Central European Initiative (CEI), pointing out that security and stability of Europe are key issues that need to be taken seriously and be approached in a very organized, persistent and coordinated manner.

Zvizdić said that throughout the world, and unfortunately in Europe, there is a growing gap between East and West, which has resulted in migrations of young, educated and talented people and an increase in radicalism that threatens the core values that are based on justice and fairness.

He added that increased and substantially wider cooperation between European East and West, especially in economy, education, transfer of knowledge and technologies, innovation, etc., could help reduce this gap and stimulate a balanced development across Europe.

The summit in Sarajevo gathers delegations of member states of CEI countries - Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia and Ukraine.
