OSCE Annual Report 2013
In 2013, under the Chairmanship of Ukraine, the OSCE focused on the resolution of protracted conflicts and pushing forward with the Helsinki+40 process towards building a comprehensive, co-operative, equal and indivisible security community.
At the Ministerial Council meeting in Kyiv, the Organization’s participating States agreed to reinforce efforts on the situation of Roma and Sinti; on human trafficking; and on the control of small arms and light weapons.
They also adopted decisions on freedom of thought, conscience, religion or belief; on renewable energy policies and the environment; and on the protection of energy networks from disasters.
