In 2013 Ukraine holds the OSCE chairmanship. Ukraine considers this as an important opportunity to make a solid contribution to strengthening security and promoting stability from Vancouver to Vladivostok. As OSCE Chair, Ukraine looks forward to working with Turkey and all our OSCE partners in building a free, democratic, common, and indivisible Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian security community. Another important milestone ahead for Ukraine is the Third Eastern Partnership Summit to be held in Vilnius in November 2013. The Vilnius Summit may provide impetus for the further development of the Eastern Partnership by becoming the first event of its kind marked not only with words but with concrete deeds.
