Armed Forces operations in support of the 2014 OSCE Ministerial Council Meeting


Switzerland is chairing the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe OSCE in 2014, and is therefore responsible for the organisation of the annual meeting of the Ministerial Council, which will be held in Basel on 4 and 5 December.

As extensive security measures are required during the meeting, the Federal Council and Parliament have approved an armed forces civil support operation. For a maximum of eight days, up to 5,000 Armed Forces personnel will assist the civilian authorities in ensuring the security of the conference.
