Cooperation between central and southeast European nations will increase energy security and the competitiveness of all involved, Hungaryʼs foreign minister Peter Szijjártó said yesterday, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.

The participants agreed to hold regular meetings and set up an working committee of experts in order to facilitate infrastructure development projects. The committee will focus on implementation, funding and pricing and guarantee that cooperation will remain open to other countries as well, he told a press conference, adding that the committee would begin work on the initiative right away.
