    The annual meeting is being held in a virtual format this year for the first time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    Sputnik welcomes you to the first day of the 27th Ministerial Council of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) held via a videolink by foreign ministers of the 57-nation grouping.

    The ministerial council is the OSCE's main decision-making and governing body, which routinely meets in the capital of the presiding country. 

    The event will begin with an opening session followed by two plenary sessions, during which heads of delegations are expected to make statements.
