Turkey takes over PABSEC presidency in Serbia

Turkey took over the term presidency of Parliamentary Assembly of Black Sea Economic Cooperation (PABSEC) in Belgrade, Serbia on Thursday.

Delivering a speech during the take-over ceremony, Turkish Deputy Parliament Speaker Nevzat Pakdil said that the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) organization was gaining more significance each day.

Many influential countries and organizations in the world are developing policies vis-a-vis the Black Sea region. As the most comprehensive organization in the region, BSEC will assist such influential countries and organizations so that the common geography and people in the region get benefits, Pakdil said.

Since its establishment, PABSEC's efforts to preserve the rule of law, and efforts made in the areas of commerce, agriculture, education and rights of the disabled have been welcomed with appreciation, Pakdil underlined.

PABSEC aims to improve the welfare and living standards of the regional people. PABSEC also aims to facilitate economic, commercial, social and cultural cooperation among the respective parliaments, Pakdil said.

We are fully convinced that the PABSEC will contribute to peace and stability in the region. With such thoughts, I am honored to take over the term presidency of the PABSEC today, Pakdil said.

The Turkish Parliament will always make the necessary contributions so that PABSEC assists regional cooperation, Pakdil said.

Pakdil later spoke at a press conference.

Speaking at the press conference, Pakdil said that Turkey paid high importance to its relations with neighbors.

Turkey aims to have 'zero problem' with its neighbors. Turkey acts based on the principle of 'peace at home, peace in the world'. Peace must be maintained in every corner of the world, Pakdil said.

The two hands must be open to be able to shake hands. As Turkey, we want to shake hands and find peaceful solutions to problems, Pakdil said.

Wherever it may be, parliaments have a duty to be against injustice all around the world. We will work so that the PABSEC can be more effective globally, Pakdil also said.
