Ukraine is among Austria’s priorities for 2017 OSCE Chairmanship

OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Austria’s Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, has highlighted key challenges facing the Organization and its participating States in 2017, including those regarding Ukraine.

This is said in the press release, posted on the OSCE website.

As noted, three key challenges are deplorable and complex crises and conflicts in the OSCE area, a fundamental lack of mutual trust and confidence, and an alarming phenomenon of growing radicalization and violent extremism, especially among young people.

“Pointing to the OSCE's experience as a facilitator, mediator and connector for a common space of 1.2 billion people, the Chairperson-in-Office emphasized that the organization can provide all necessary tools for promoting de-escalation and enabling sustainable political solutions to the conflicts in the OSCE area, not least the conflict in and around Ukraine,” the press release reads.
