HE WISHED ARMENIA TO LIVE IN PEACE
"International institutions are called to unite different countries to find effective ways of solutions for universal issues".

On the 15th December OSCE Secretary General Marc Perrin de Brichambaut held a meeting with YSU Faculty of International Relations students. Having graduated from the Political School of Paris in 1974, he started his career as a diplomat. Some time later Marc Perrin de Brichambaut moved to UN office as an assistant. Years later he returned to France and used to work with different officials. Later he was the head of French Delegation at OSCE. In 2005 Mr. Brichambaut was appointed OSCE Secretary. In 2008 he was reelected.

First Mr. Brichambaut told about the OSCE history and foundation. Such organizations permanently develop. One must observe international organizations not as static structures, but dynamic ones, - said Mr. Secretary, adding that these institutions, generally, not only respond to some definite situation, but have projects of own, too. 

Presenting the history of OSCE, Marc Perrin de Brichambaut mentioned that in 1970-es Europe was divided in two confronting blocks. Finland was too powerful, but a neutral one. And this country decided to start the dialogue on European security issues. Representatives of 35 countries gathered in Finland in 1973 to decide the real meaning of European security. 

Currently OSCE is the institution, dealing with political, economic, environmental issues. When students asked him if OSCE and NATO share anything common in their activities, Mr. Brichambaut answered: Roles of these two structures are different. There area packages on various issues in the area of this or that institution. A complementary policy is required.

Future diplomats were interested in Mr. Brichambauts opinion regarding Karabakh Conflict, Minsk Group role, possible presence of peacekeepers in this region. Regarding the issues of peacekeepers an agreement by both parties must be. People must trust them, and everything will be more effective. 

Head of International Cooperation Administration Alexander Markarov said Alma Mater and OSCE have got rich experience of cooperation.

In the end of the meeting Mr. Secretary General thanked the studentship for the participation in this meeting. He wished Armenia peace, progress and success.
