Switzerland firmly believes that dialogue and joint action are the drivers of greater security in Europe. The initial discussions facilitated a better perception and understanding of the risks to security in Europe. The challenge in the coming years will be to reduce these risks in order to eliminate the possibility of a new conflict breaking out in Europe.
In addition to political and military issues concerning the European continent, the ministers will have the opportunity to address questions such as the fight against terrorism and violent extremism, the defence of human rights and the threat of cyber attacks. Switzerland advocates that the OSCE take proactive action in this field and proposes putting in place a standardised consultation mechanism within the organisation to prepare it for the event of a major cyber incident.
