In order to increase maritime security in the surrounding sea areas, Turkey has pioneered a series of initiatives in last decade. It: led the Blacksea for initiative in 2001; participated in confidence and security building measures in naval field in 2002; launched operation Black Sea Harmony in 2004; and initiated a Black Sea coast and border guards cooperation forum.
