Foreign ministers to gather in Slovakia on 9 July for discussions on OSCE’s future role

Foreign ministers from all over the OSCE region will gather in Slovakia’s Tatras Mountains on Tuesday, 9 July 2019 to discuss the future of the OSCE’s work in a changing multilateral landscape, ONA reports citing OSCE press service.

Placing great importance on real, interactive dialogue, OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Slovak Foreign and European Affairs MinisterMiroslav Lajčák will convene ministers to engage interactively on issues of pressing concern under the theme, From past action to future prevention: the OSCE´s niche in fostering stability in Europe and beyond.

The gathering, one of the most important events on the agenda of the Slovak OSCE Chairmanship, will cover all three of its priorities for 2019, namely conflict prevention and resolution, providing for a safer future, and effective multilateralism. It will allow ministers to reflect on best practices and lessons learned over the past four decades of regional multilateral co-operation on issues of security. The discussion will encourage all participants to look ahead at the changing nature of security threats and to consider the future role and relevance of the OSCE as a regional security actor for conflict prevention within the European security architecture.
