During the Slovak presidency of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), Slovak diplomacy will try to restore negotiations at the top level between Kiev and Moscow, the head of the OSCE Centre for Conflict Prevention Marcel Pesko stated on Thursday.
Nevertheless, Pesko did not say whether Slovakia would really be able to advance significantly the Ukrainian peace process in 2019. He noted that although there are the basic parameters of a peace agreement, "the top political leaders of the countries involved in this conflict aren't communicating with each other". It is for this reason that the main priority of the Slovak presidency is to try to restore this dialogue. More on the priorities in our Topical issue.
