Former Switzerland’s Permanent Representative to the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE), Thomas Greminger, could become the new OSCE Secretary General.

“Essentially, there are no objections to Greminger’s nomination,” the official said. “However, the situation has been exacerbated by attempts of some OSCE member-countries to link the appointment of a new secretary general with work to fill other vacancies in important areas of OSCE activities. All that creates a lose-lose situation, which needs to be resolved until Friday, as the term of office of incumbent OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier expires on June 30.”
