President Migliori, fresh from a trip to the United States, where he held meetings with National Security Council officials, stressed the importance of balancing the OSCE's activities east and west of Vienna.

He emphasized the rule of law, corruption and transnational crime as areas in which the Assembly will continue to focus its parliamentary dialogue. In a meeting with Chairman Sergei Naryshkin of the Russian Duma, Migliori urged for continued robust participation from the Russian Delegation, which has been increasingly active in election observation missions.

Migliori also met with Nikolay Kovalev, Head of the Russian Delegation to the OSCE PA, Acting Foreign Minister Andrey Denisov, and Ambassador-at-Large Sergey Gubarev, who focuses on Moldova/Transdniestria.

The president was supported by Secretary General Spencer Oliver, Senior Counselor Semyon Dzakhaev, Director of Presidential Administration Roberto Montella, and Valeria Galardini of the Italian Parliament.
