Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC)

On 25 June 1992, the Heads of State and Government of eleven countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine signed in Istanbul the Summit Declaration and the Bosporus Statement giving birth to the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC).

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia closely cooperates with the respective law-enforcement agencies of the BSEC Member States within the frames of the Agreement among the Governments of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) Participating States on cooperation in combating crime, in particular in its organized forms, signed on October 2, 1998 and its Additional Protocols. The requests on cooperation introduced to the Ministry from the law-enforcement agencies of other BSEC Member States are dealt with, responded and implemented in accordance with the abovementioned agreement and its protocols and in compliance with the Georgian legislation.

There is also functioning a network of liaison officers established by the Additional Protocol signed on March 15, 2002, which facilitates the communication of requests on cooperation and relevant information between the law-enforcement agencies of the BSEC Member States. Therefore, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia actively uses the mentioned communication means to receive and send requests on cooperation and the relevant information in order to facilitate their implementation in a reasonable time.
