KIEV, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will attend a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on Thursday in Kiev.
The Russian delegation will raise the question of “using the OSCE for harmonising integration processes in the west and east of Europe,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier. “We also intend to highlight the problem of threats coming from the Southern Mediterranean countries, the importance of which is projected to be growing.”
The Russian delegation will also draw attention to the rights of ethnic minorities, “including the rights of compatriots in Latvia and Estonia.” “The phenomenon of statelessness in these countries is a shame for modern Europe and the world,” the ministry said.
The Russian officials intend to voice concern about the growing radical sentiment in OSCE countries.
The ministers will adopt several documents, including a declaration on Afghanistan. On the sidelines of the forum, Lavrov will meet with OSCE leaders and his foreign colleagues.
The 20th Meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council will be held in Kiev on December 5-6. The venue will be the International Exhibition Centre.
