As have informed Agency LETA in the Ministry of foreign Affairs, rinkēvičs in his speech stressed that Ukraine should remain the center of attention of the OSCE, taking into account the role of this organization in the resolution of conflicts. It is unacceptable that individual members of the OSCE have a fundamentally different understanding of the basic principles and values, as evidenced by Russia's aggression in Ukraine, ignoring her independence, unity and territorial integrity.

Rinkēvičs expressed support for diplomatic efforts to end the conflict. According to him, the OSCE is a platform for resolving "frozen" conflicts in Europe, but to achieve real results needs to be stronger political will.

Rinkēvičs took part in a special meeting on the situation of human rights in the Crimea and held several bilateral meetings.
