The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on Thursday decided that the 2010 OSCE Mediterranean Conference will be held in Malta in October.
The Permanent Council, the regular decision-making body of the OSCE composed of the Permanent Representatives of the participating States, welcomed the offer made by Malta to host the Conference. It also accepted a proposal made by Malta for the Conference to address, from a Mediterranean perspective, themes currently being debated within the Organisation in the dialogue on the future of European security.
The OSCE Mediterranean Conference is expected to bring together Ambassadors and representatives from the 56 OSCE participating States and the six OSCE Mediterranean Partners for Cooperation (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia). The OSCE Secretary General, senior officials from the OSCE Institutions and representatives of the OSCE Asian Partners for Cooperation are also expected to participate in the Conference.
The organization of the OSCE Conference in October is part of Malta’s continuing efforts to promote dialogue, peace and stability in the Mediterranean and to position Malta as an ideal destination for Conferences and meetings.
This success is the result of the work carried out by Malta’s Embassy in Vienna led by Ambassador Christopher Grima. Deputy Prime Minister Dr Tonio Borg expressed his satisfaction towards this achievement.
