BELGRADE, December 7. /TASS/. Serbia, which will hold the presidency in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in 2015, will host the next annual meeting of the OSCE Foreign Ministers Council. It will be held on December 3-4, 2015 in Belgrade, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Sunday.
The first Serbia-chaired event will be a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council due on January 15, 2015. “In formal terms, presidency in the OSCE will come over to us on January 1, 2015, but as a matter of fact, it was already been handed over to us,” Dacic said.
As the future Chairperson-in-Office of the OSCE, the Serbian foreign minister said he attached great significance of this mission for his country, which would have a possibility to “reiterate its consistent political positions.”
Earlier in the week, Dacic said the top priority of his country’s presidency in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe was to be the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis. Today, he said that three years ago, when Serbia had put forth its candidacy as for the OSCE presidency, “no one could even think how responsible this mission would be.” “A lot of wisdom” would be needed to solve the Ukrainian crisis, he noted, adding that it would be perfect chance for Serbia to demonstrate itself as a responsible country and a mediator in a peace settlement. “We will continue consultations with all parties concerned,” he stressed.
