The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly often chooses Belarus as a platform for its events. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko held a meeting with its chairman Georgy Tsereteli. The central theme of the dialogue was the strengthening of the role of the Organization and its parliamentary dimension in resolving "hot" and "frozen" conflicts in Europe. As the Belarusian leader noted, a summit in the OSCE format would help to remove many of the contradictions.
