Ukraine must be Three Seas member - Zelenskiy

STORY: "One look at the geographical map of our region is enough to realize that only with Ukraine can all our countries fulfil their full potential,” said Zelenskiy addressing the summit via videolink.

He added that the countries of the Three Seas are Ukraine’s connection to the free world.

Zelenskiy presented his proposals of cooperation in different fields to leaders of Central and Eastern European countries that attended the summit in Riga.

The two-day event focuses on the geopolitical and business cooperation of nations located between the Adriatic, Baltic and Black Seas.

The participants included the representatives of the three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania), the countries in the Visegrad group (Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary), as well as Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, and Romania.

The Three Seas Initiative was established by the Croatian and Polish governments in 2016 aiming to strengthen cooperation between the countries involved and boost economic ties and enhance energy, transport, and digital links among countries.
