VIENNA, July 18. /TASS/. Switzerland’s former Permanent Representative to the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) Thomas Greminger has been appointed OSCE Secretary-General, the organization’s headquarters in Vienna reported on Tuesday.
It noted that July 18 marked the end of the so-called silence procedure after the OSCE Permanent Council agreed on a single candidate on July 12, appointed Greminger as the nominee to this post and asked the OSCE foreign ministers to endorse the candidate during the five-day silence procedure.
The appointment came into force, since there were no objections from the foreign ministers before the deadline set for July 18.
