Guardian of the Danube: Romania’s Mixed Progress in Implementing a Black Sea Strategy (George Vișan, The Jamestown Foundation)

Romania’s maritime environment consists of the Danube River and the Black Sea. The river links the country to the sea providing an important trade connection with the rest of the continent as well as a natural frontier. Moreover, the Danube is crucial for Romania as it is one of the country’s most important sources of energy. Romania’s main interests in the Black Sea are ensuring peace and stability, freedom of navigation and energy security along with exploitation of the natural resources found in its exclusive economic zone.
