MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) - The OSCE secretary general plans to visit Minsk in October, Belarus’ Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said at a press conference following the informal ministerial meeting of the Eastern Partnership member states on 22 June, BelTA has learned.

Vladimir Makei stressed that Belarus is always ready to provide a platform for dialogue, should one or another party need it. “Today, at the plenary session we talked about stability and security. For us these are fundamental issues. When we say that we are ready to make any contribution to the settlement of certain conflicts, we say it sincerely, without looking to reap any political or other dividends. We understand that stability and security in our region, in our country are key to the well-being and prosperity of our citizens, independence of our state,” the minister said.

In late October and early November Minsk will host a meeting of the core group of the Munich Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, the minister informed. “About a hundred high officials have been invited. We hope that the event will bring together representatives of even those conflicting parties who cannot sit at the negotiating table today," he continued.

This event will be held together with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. “The OSCE secretary general plans to visit Belarus,” Vladimir Makei noted.
