Distinguished Conference participants,
The current representative forum is dedicated to a key issue of today -International Cooperation for Security and Stability. I was asked to talk in this context about Europe's role and challenges.
The choice of this topic is not a tribute to fashion or political expediency. As never before, the modern world demonstrates its dynamics and interconnection. Almost every aspect of modern life is subject to change. We are witnessing rapidly evolving economic potentials, landscape of global markets, balances of political influence and changing paradigm of interaction between states and their organizations.
