My right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary and his ministerial team were unable to attend the annual Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) ministerial meeting in Athens on 1 and 2 December 2009. My right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary, my honourable friend Ivan Lewis and my honourable friend Chris Bryant were answering Foreign Office Questions. I was returning from the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Foreign Secretary attended the OSCE Ministerial Council in Helsinki in 2008 and the Informal Ministerial in Corfu in June 2009.
