OSH, Kyrgyzstan -- Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) officials on May 12-18 met with Kyrgyz officials in the nation's south to follow up and plan development programmes, the OSCE said on its website Tuesday (May 21).

The OSCE's activities in Kyrgyzstan include projects focused on "economic development and digitalisation, community policing, as well as preventing and countering violent extremism and radicalisation that lead to terrorism", said the OSCE.

Pierre von Arx, head of the OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek, and other OSCE officials met with local authorities, implementing partners and civil society in the southern provinces of Kyrgyzstan, Osh, Jalal-Abad and Batken.

"The visit gave an important impulse for planning and prioritising programmatic activities in 2019 and 2020," the OSCE said.
