Rome/Vienna [ENA] The 2019 Annual Security Review Conference (ASRC), organized by the Slovak OSCE Chairmanship, will take place from 25 to 27 June 2019 in Vienna, under the motto “For People, Dialogue and Stability: Strengthening Comprehensive Security in the OSCE Area”. The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that includes politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects.

It consequently focuses on a wide range of security-related affairs, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis. Bringing together diplomats and officials from national capitals in Vienna, this annual high-level OSCE conference offers a forum for a deep and wide-ranging discussion on current security threats and challenges for Europe and the role of the OSCE in effectively addressing them.

The opening session in the morning of 25 June 2019 will be addressed by Miroslav Lajčák, OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic; Catherine Ashton, The Rt. Hon. Baroness of Upholland and Former EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy; Dr. Heinz Fischer, Co-Chair of the Ban Ki-moon Centre and 11th State President of the Republic of Austria; and OSCE Secretary General, Thomas Greminger. Journalists are invited to follow the keynote segment of the opening session from 9:00 to 9.30 on Tuesday, 25 June, at the Hofburg Conference Centre's Neuer Saal.Media interested in attending the keynote segment should register by e-mail to press@osce.org, by 18:00, Monday, 24 June.
