To ask Her Majesty's Government by what criteria they will assess the 2010 Kazakhstan chairmanship of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe as to its success.
Kazakhstan is working hard to manage its responsibilities across the full range of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)'s activities. As with all OSCE chairs, it can expect scrutiny from the international community.
We expect Kazakhstan to live up to its public assurances to uphold the principles of the organisation as chair and to balance its work across all three OSCE dimensions.
We want Kazakhstan's year in the chair to be a success. With that in mind, we continue to offer assistance where we can, underlining the importance of living up to its OSCE commitments.
