It doesn’t form any policies, and in many cases this group is in the margins,” stated the head of Slovak diplomacy in his opening address in front of the youth and experienced experts from all the 57 participating states as well as the Asian and Mediterranean Partners for Cooperation of the OSCE. The addresses in the opening panel were also given by OSCE Secretary-General Thomas Greminger.
