Kazakhstan Urges OSCE to Overcome Mistrust with “Inclusive Security”

VIENNA – Kazakhstan asked the Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe on Thursday to develop a concept of “inclusive security” to overcome the “mistrust” some member-states have toward the organization.

“We believe there is an urgent need to undertake joint efforts,” Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov said on the first day of the OSCE ministerial summit in Vienna.

In reference to the various conflicts that plague the OSCE region, Kazakhstan’s top diplomat stressed that his country “contributes to mediation efforts on the Eurasian continent.”

“In light of persisting mistrust among some participating states,” a structured dialogue could eventually lead to “restoring confidence in our Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian security community,” the Kazakh minister concluded.

Abdrakhmanov was referring to the growing distrust between Russia and Western countries, especially due to the conflict in eastern Ukraine, cited at the start of the summit by the current OSCE chairperson, Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz.

“We have to decisively confront this tendency (of mistrust). We can only ensure security in Europe through more trust and more collaboration,” Kurz said.

Despite the calls for dialogue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson exchanged harsh accusations here Thursday in their respective speeches.

While the Russian minister spoke of a “reckless expansion” of NATO into Eastern Europe and criticized the installation of a US anti-missile shield in Europe, Tillerson accused Moscow of being “the origin” of the violence in Ukraine.
