(ANSA) - BUCHAREST, SEP 8 - The war in Ukraine is the key issue at the Three Seas Initiative (3SI) Summit, which is taking place in Bucharest. In his speech, Romania's Premier Marcel Ciolacu emphasized that "the Three Seas Initiative has become a shield for the defense of the future of our citizens, our economies, but above all our security." The discussion inevitably slipped into the crisis in Ukraine, which, recently, has created some concern among the Romanian population, especially those near the borders.
    "Ukraine calls us to be more united," Ciolacu continued, "to devote ourselves more to the defense of democratic values and to solidarity in building a powerful economy in this area, an economy that unites and strengthens us. The future must include the reconstruction of Ukraine and the extension of the European Union.", the Romanian premier said.
    The Three Seas Initiative (3SI) is a platform including 12 EU countries between the Baltic, Adriatic, and Black Seas, whose goal is to strengthen cooperation, especially in energy infrastructure, digital, and transport. (ANSA).
