On the occasion of the completion of H.E. Thomas Greminger’s term as OSCE Secretary General, let us express our deep gratitude for your excellent service. For the past years, you have guided the OSCE Secretariat with panache and enthusiasm and navigated the organization through challenging times.
You have initiated significant positive change within the organization and have sharpened the profile and international standing of the OSCE, while ensuring continuity. Under your able leadership of the Secretariat, the OSCE has raised its capacities across all three dimensions of the work of the OSCE. The partnership between the Asian Partners and the OSCE has steadily strengthened over the years and has proved to be essential in guaranteeing a comprehensive and sustainable security in the OSCE region.
We would like to express our gratitude for your personal support to Afghanistan. You have been a true friend of Afghanistan and we thank you for supporting the many initiatives for our country. Afghanistan and its people will never forget what you have done for them. Our gratitude also goes to the OSCE Secretariat and distinguished colleagues from the External Cooperation’s teams for their continuous engagement and cooperation in strengthening our partnership with the OSCE.
We thank you for your hard work and commitment and wish you every success for your future endeavors.
