VIENNA, February 27, (ITAR-TASS). Chair in Office of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter expressed his serious concern at on-going developments in Crimea and announced a visit by his Personal Envoy Tim Guldimann and OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities Astrid Thors within the coming days.
“I urge everyone concerned to exercise responsibility and caution in this precarious situation, and call on all sides to take all necessary measures to avoid further escalation and refrain from violence,” Burkhalter said on Thursday, February 27.
The Personal Envoy received strong support for an OSCE role in overcoming the crisis by the various parties he met during the last three days. The Envoy and the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities Astrid Thors will travel to Crimea in the next few days to bring their skills and expertise to bear on the situation.
