Right of Reply to the Russian Federation on the Representative of the OSCE Joint Latvian-Russian Commission on Military Pensioners
As delivered by Ambassador James S. Gilmore III
to the Permanent Council, Vienna
November 19, 2020
I don’t want to speak very long, but let me simply state to my Russian colleague: I am confused about nothing. We understand the broad panoply of issues that are at play in the OSCE and therefore are simply pointing out the success that Russia has had, in being able to peacefully work with one of its adjacent countries and suggest that this is simply an example. We want to congratulate the Russian Federation on the success that they have had and ask them to think about that as they go forward in the future with other countries, including their neighbors, in which they are engaged.
