Belarus to publish MSC Core Group Meeting initiatives

MINSK, 5 November (BelTA) - Belarus will develop concepts for the implementation of the proposals voiced at the Munich Security Conference Core Group Meeting in Minsk, Belarus’ Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said in an interview to the Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA has learned.

According to Vladimir Makei, the Belarusian capital hosted not only partners but also representatives of the conflicting parties. The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss topical issues and also to present the Belarusian initiatives aimed at strengthening peace and security.

“It is important that Belarus’ voice was heard. A lot of interesting ideas were put forward. We will do our best to generalize them and put some of them on paper. I met with my colleagues, including the minister for foreign affairs of Slovakia, the country that will chair the OSCE next year, and we agreed to promote some ideas that were discussed at the Munich Conference Security Core Group Meeting. We will draw up relevant concepts,” Vladimir Makei said.

He stressed that holding such events in Belarus contributes to the image of the country in the international arena and to its sovereignty. Many participants of the meeting see Minsk as an effective venue. “Everyone I talked to spoke positively of the meeting, both of the form and the content. We did our best to make the guests feel comfortable,” the minister added, emphasizing the importance of dialogue and compromise on the problematic issues.
