The Italian Chairmanship of OSCE will focus on resolution of all protracted conflicts in the OSCE area.
“These are extremely complex times as far as security in the OSCE area is concerned. Recently, in our region, the crisis in and around Ukraine has called into question the very principles on which the OSCE is based. Furthermore, we shall keep our focus on all the major protracted conflicts and their impact on the life of civilian populations, in Georgia or concerning Nagorno-Karabakh and Transdniestria,” program of the Italian Chairmanship reads.
When representing Italy’s priorities in Vienna, Foreign Minister, OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Angelino Alfano said they “will support the work of the co-chairs of the Minsk Group to find definitive agreed solution to this conflict”.
