Euro-Mediterranean Countries[edit]

Euro-Mediterranean countries are states that are members of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership which began in 1995 as an effort for European countries to strengthen their relations with countries in the Arab region. Currently, these members include all 28 EU member states plus Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey. The three main objectives of the Euro- Mediterranean Partnership are establishing a common area of peace and security, financial partnership and gradual establishment of a free-trade area, and the promotion of deeper cultural understandings between the countries.
