Kremlin Hopes for Cooperation with New OSCE Chief – Russian Diplomat
Russia hopes that the newly-appointed OSCE Secretary General, Thomas Greminger, will be able to develop the potential of cooperation with Russia, Russian Permanent Representative to the OSCE Alexander Lukashevich said during a video conference from Vienna.
"Mr. Greminger served as Switzerland’s Permanent Representative to the OSCE during that country’s chairmanship in the organization in 2014, when fundamental decisions amid the Ukrainian crisis were made, showing a fairly principled approach", Lukashevich noted.
The Russian diplomat pointed to huge potential for the organization’s development and for its ties with Moscow created by Zannier. "We do hope that he Mr. Greminger will be able to develop the potential that the secretary general has and cooperation with the OSCE member-countries. We will welcome efforts to expand our dialogue between Russia and the OSCE, which was developing successfully with former Secretary General Zannier", Russian diplomat resumed.
