Official Logo AS2017 MinskThe OSCE Parliamentary Assembly will meet on 5-9 July 2017 in Minsk for its 26th Annual Session. With some 300 parliamentarians from North America, Europe and Asia expected to participate, the theme of the Session is “Enhancing mutual trust and co-operation for peace and prosperity in the OSCE region.”

The largest event on the Assembly’s calendar, the Annual Session consists of several days of meetings featuring high-level speeches and debates, and will culminate in the adoption of the Minsk Declaration. This political document will contain recommendations to national governments, parliaments and the international community in the fields of political affairs, security, economics, environment and human rights.

Representing the collective voice of the OSCE parliamentarians, the Declaration helps shape OSCE and national policy, and will be complemented by a number of supplementary items on a wide range of issues relating to OSCE commitments and values. The resolutions that will form the basis of the Declaration (following debates and an amendment process) are available below.

The Annual Session will also include elections of several OSCE Parliamentary Assembly officers, including Vice-Presidents and Treasurer.

General information and draft programmes are available to the right. Additional practical information about the Annual Session can be found at the website of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus.

International journalists interested in attending the Annual Session who are currently not accredited in Belarus should consult the Belarusian Foreign Ministry's web page, "Accreditation of foreign journalists."
