DUSHANBE, June 8, 2016, Asia-Plus – Tajik Foreign Minister Sirojiddin Aslov yesterday met here with Ambassador Marcel Pesko, Director of the OSCE Conflict Prevention Center.

According to the Tajik MFA information department, the two discussed issues related to cooperation between Tajikistan and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), including implementation of joint projects in Tajikistan.

Aslov and Pesko also discussed the agenda of the Tenth Task Force Meeting on the OSCE’s role in Tajikistan that is taking place in Dushanbe today.

Ambassador Marcel Pesko assumed the position of Director of the Conflict Prevention Centre on September 1, 2015.

The OSCE’s comprehensive approach to security is closely tied to the concept of early warning, conflict prevention, crisis management, and post-conflict rehabilitation, also named the “conflict cycle.”  The Organization’s main methods to address this cycle include its network of field operations and the Conflict Prevention Center.  Created in 1990 to help reduce the risk of conflict, the Center now provides policy advice, support, and analysis to the Secretary General, Chairmanship, participating States, and field operations.  It acts as an OSCE-wide early warning focal point, facilitates negotiation, mediation, and other conflict prevention and resolution efforts, and supports regional co-operation initiatives.  It also assists the Forum for Security Cooperation, an autonomous OSCE decision-making body dealing with military security; and supports the Organization’s program and project management work.
