MINSK, 16 March (BelTA) - Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Austria, Belarus’ Permanent Representative to the OSCE Alena Kupchyna called to strengthen the OSCE economic and environmental dimension when speaking at a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council, BelTA learned from the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
