During the OSCE PA plenary session head of the Belarusian delegation Boleslav Pirshtuk addressed to the members of the Assembly the words of thanks and gratitude to the German side for the excellent organization of the annual session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, which is the largest forum of the parliamentary dimension. Belarusian MPs passed the symbolic baton to Berlin from Minsk where the 26th annual session of the OSCE PA took place in the past year.
Boleslav Pirshtuk stated the necessity to increase the level of dialogue between the states — participants of the OSCE and restore confidence, the exchange of views and best practices on the role of parliaments in the implementation of commitments in the face of increasing international tension and lack of trust in the OSCE area.

A bilateral meeting of the members of the Belarusian delegation with the parliamentary delegation of Switzerland was also held this day. MPs discussed issues of inter-parliamentary cooperation in the framework of the OSCE PA, as well as exchanged views on a number of issues on the agenda of the session.,
This day there was also a meeting of members of the Belarusian parliamentary delegation with the OSCE PA President George Tsereteli and the Secretary General of the OSCE PA Roberto Montella, who praised the participation of Belarusian parliamentarians in the Assembly’s activities.All news
