Bushati at the 25th OSCE Ministerial Council: Albania, committed to continue contributing to peace and stability in the region

Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Ditmir Bushati is attending the 25th meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Milan. The Foreign Ministers discussed the role of OSCE as an important organization of security and co-operation with the common objective to join efforts in resolving conflicts and addressing the challenges faced today by security and stability in the OSCE space.

During the morning session, Minister Bushati underlined that Albania fully supports the priorities of the Italian Presidency presented at the beginning of this year, to strengthen OSCE capacities and its pro-active approach to national and international security, economic co-operation and environmental, political and military dialogue and respect for human rights. Albania will continue to provide its valuable contribution not only to the implementation of peace and stability in the Balkan region but also throughout the OSCE region, said Bushati.

He underlined the need to reconstruct trust and constructive dialogue to face critical and complex challenges such as conflicts, violent extremism, terrorism, cyber threats, immigration flows, organized crime, or even barriers to economic development.

In his remarks Minister Bushati pointed out that “Such transnational threats require, at all costs, a greater transparency and predictability. Trust and constructive dialogue are necessary to enable us to share more information and tackle together the current and future challenges in the OSCE area”.

The Foreign Ministers exchanged also their views on strengthening the OSCE capabilities as well as respective contribution for the promotion of co-operation among the OSCE countries and the need to establish a common dialogue and responsibility in respecting the principles and the unity of the Organization.

During the proceedings of the Milan Ministerial Council, Minister Bushati held several bilateral meetings with high representatives of OSCE institutions as well as with counterparts present in Milan.
