"Minister [Chrystia Freeland] will be in Vienna, Austria, from December 7 to 8, to attend the 24th Ministerial Council of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). The Minister, participating in her first Ministerial Council, will advance Canada's priorities in international security and human rights, focusing attention on Ukraine and Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea," the ministry reported.
Freeland said that she would defend in Vienna "a rules-based international order."

I look forward to reaffirming Canada's continued commitment to a rules-based international order, democratic freedoms, and transatlantic cooperation and security," she said.
