09/07/2019

The Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, Josep Borrell, participated in the Informal Ministerial Meeting of the OSCE held on 8 and 9 July in High Tatras, in Slovakia.

A total of 24 Ministers of Foreign Affairs, the main representatives of the Organisation and several delegates from the 57 participating States have discussed the role of the OSCE in order to improve security and stability in Europe.

Minister Borrell highlighted that, within the current security framework, the possibilities that the OSCE offers should not be missed due to its arrangement and its integral security concept.

The Minister recalled the firm and generous commitment of Spain for an active and effective multilateralism that enables us to face global challenges that require common responses.

The Ministers have informally discussed the main conflicts on the European continent, especially on the situation in Ukraine, the South Caucasus and the Balkans.

Minister Borrell stressed that the so-called protracted conflicts must be addressed in a spirit of understanding, considering their effects on the affected populations and respecting the principle of territorial integrity.

During the meeting, Minister Borrell held bilateral meetings with his counterparts from Northern Macedonia, Albania, Andorra and Kazakhstan.
