Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, Minister of State attached to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, is taking part in the 26th Ministerial Council of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) today in Bratislava, Slovakia.

In the face of European security challenges, the minister of state will underscore the importance that France attaches to the OSCE, which brings together 57 participating states and is the only forum for dialogue that stretches from Vancouver to Vladivostok. He will underscore the relevance of the principles adopted in 1975 in Helsinki and in 1990 in the Charter of Paris, notably the comprehensive and participatory concept of security embodied by this organization, from a military as well as economic, environmental and human perspective.

He will have bilateral discussions with the Belgian, Montenegro and Swiss foreign ministers, as well as with the head of the delegation of the future Albanian presidency of the OSCE.

During this visit to Bratislava, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne will meet with the French business community in Slovakia.
