The Group of Nine (G9) is a group of nine North-Eastern European nations that (used to) meet occasionally to discuss matters of mutual interest.[1] As of 2012, there is no evidence that the group is either active or not, nor if any country from the Former Yugoslavia is still active.

History[edit]

The alliance first came out in 1965, when the nine nations were lobbying and presenting a case study. They co-sponsor the Resolution 2129 promoting East-West cooperation in Europe, adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 1965.[2]

During the invasion of Czechoslovakia of 1968, the group met again to discuss any issues that may arise because of the attack.[citation needed]
