Statement by His Excellency Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Federal President of the Federal Republic of Germany on the Three Seas Initiative
Germany shares the overall objective of the „Three Seas Initiative“, driven by EU member states between the Baltic, the Black and the Adriatic Sea: reinforcing energy security, connectivity and welfare in Europe. Building on established EU policies and instruments, the initiative has huge potential to create synergies and thus provide important added value to the region.
Germany stands ready to actively participate in this undertaking. I pay tribute to President Kaljulaid for her strong personal commitment as this year’s host of the first virtual summit of the initiative.
