Russia to invite OSCE to address condition of Christians in Mideast - Lavrov

Moscow, November 24, Interfax - Moscow plans to bring up the issue of protection of Christians in the Middle East during an OSCE Ministerial Council meeting in Basel, Switzerland, in December, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"We are calling for doing something about this together with the OSCE. We will be proposing now that processes leading to anti-Christian sentiment [in the Middle East] should be analyzed," Lavrov said at an assembly of the Foreign and Defense Policy Council think tank on Saturday.

"We will make this proposal at an OSCE Ministerial Council meeting in Basel in a week," he said.
