    “European security architecture, underpinned by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, doesn’t need to be built from scratch, but rather adapted to new threats,” emphasised MFA Political Director Witold Sobków speaking during the panel “Reinventing New European Security” at the Bled Strategic Forum in Slovenia.

    Director Sobków noted that the need to adapt using proven instruments also applies to NATO. “Although the Warsaw Summit was a milestone in strengthening NATO’s defence and deterrence capabilities, it’s just a start of a long-term adaptation to the threats and challenges to our security,” underlined the Polish diplomat.

     

    Also attended by US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence Michael Carpenter, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs, and OSCE Secretary-General Lamberto Zannier, the panel discussed the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, West-Russia relations, the situation in Syria, and the migration crisis in Europe.

     

    The Bled Strategic Forum is an annual event organised by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a platform for debate on strategic regional and global issues. It brings together heads of state and government, ministers, diplomats, business, and the media.
