Three ministerial conferences on internal security in Vienna on 3-5 May 2006

EU-US Troika, meeting EU/Russia/USA, International conference on internal security

 

An EU-US troika meeting of Justice and Interior Ministers chaired by Federal Minister Liese Prokop (Interior) and Federal Minister Karin Gastinger (Justice) is being hosted by the Austrian Presidency on 3 May 2006.

On 4 May 2006 the Interior Ministers of the current and subsequent EU Presidencies (Finland, Germany, Slovenia and Portugal) will have a meeting for the first time in this combination with the Interior Ministers of the Russian Federation and the USA.

A ministerial conference on “The role of internal security in relations between the EU and its neighbours” is being held on 4-5 May 2006 on the initiative of the Austrian Presidency. The Interior Ministers of the EU Member States, the acceding and candidate countries, the EEA countries, the countries of the Western Balkans, the countries of the European neighbourhood, the Russian Federation and the USA have been invited.

This international conference on internal security aims to contribute to implementation among partners of the EU strategy for the external dimension of Justice and Home Affairs. For this reason, third countries and international organisations are included in a political dialogue in this connection for the first time.

The implementation of the European Union’s international strategy in the field of internal security is one of the priorities of the current Council Presidency.

The South-East Europe Convention will also be signed at the conference by the Interior Ministers of the parties to the Convention (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Germany and Austria).

The venue for all these events is the Conference Centre Hofburg Redoutensäle in Vienna.
