Mayor Yuri Luzhkov of Moscow, the initiator of the organization, told journalists that the organization would include the mayors of Moscow, Paris, London and Berlin.
"We made the decision to create the organization, which is abbreviated as M4," he said. "It unites our cities' specific common goals and objectives."
He said M4 would meet every year and a temporary organizing committee would be created to plan the meetings. The first meeting will be held in Berlin in 2005. "We are not a private club, we welcome interaction," he said. "We have not received an answer from either Tokyo or Washington about our offer already create the Mayors Eight over three years ago," he said.
