The OSCE recognizes gender equality as an indispensable prerequisite for inclusive peace, sustainable economic development and democratic governance. I commit to taking a leadership role to integrate the UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security agenda into our activities and to break down gender barriers within the Organization.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
