Ms Minister and OSCE Chairperson-in-Office,


We are delighted to welcome you to Moscow.

This is your second visit in 2021. We met in February and discussed your initial work as OSCE Chairperson-in-Office.

Today, we have a good opportunity to discuss developments in our common region, in the OSCE area, since early 2021, while preparing for the OSCE Ministerial Council in Stockholm in early December.

We will be ready to hear your assessments of the current stage of the drafting of documents. I hope to discuss the status of our bilateral relations at least briefly.
