MFA: Foreign Minister Haavisto to OSCE Ministerial Council meeting in Stockholm


Minister for Foreign Affairs Pekka Haavisto will attend the Ministerial Council of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, which will be held in Stockholm on 1–2 December. Sweden holds the Chairmanship of the OSCE in 2021. The meeting will discuss, among others, conflicts in the OSCE region as well as the situation in Afghanistan and its wider security impacts.

The OSCE is a key forum for European security. Its activities are divided into three dimensions, which are based on the three baskets of the Helsinki Final Act of 1975: political-military dimension, economic and environmental dimensions, and human dimension. Efforts to resolve conflicts in the OSCE region are an important part of the organisation’s activities.

Finland’s Chairmanship of the OSCE in 2025 was confirmed just before the meeting.
