    "This mechanism will allow us to bring Mediterranean issues to the OSCE and undertake initiatives for important issues, like Cyprus and the Middle East,", Lillikas added.

    Michel Voisin, Representative of the President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly for Mediterranean Affairs said the conclusions of the meeting were unanimous, adding that all participants agreed that security and stability in the Mediterranean are a necessary prerequisite to achieve a balance throughout the OSCE.

    He further said the Cyprus issue is a serious matter and is on the Working Groups agenda.

    Representatives from the 15 Mediterranean OSCE participating states, as well as from the six Mediterranean Partners for Cooperation, were present at the Limassol meeting.
