In my opinion a European security system does not exist at present.

There may be various EU-NATO military arrangements, there may be some other
specific and partial arrangements but none of these is truly European nor do
they offer equal security for all European countries.

The OSCE, put aside the name (Organization for Security and Cooperation of
Europe), has proved to be futile if not counterproductive in its activities.

Even more, in many instances it has been subject to various manipulations
favoring positions and the partisan interests of certain countries.

It has played a negative role during the Yugoslav crises, abandoning the
Final Helsinki Document’s principles on sovereignty, territorial integrity
and the inviolability of internationally recognized state boarders.

It has also violated the principle of consensus, introducing a new
„principle“ – „consensus minus one“.

It’s Mission in the Serbian Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija, at
the end of 1998 and beginning of 1999, known as the Kosovo Verification
Mission (KVM), acted rather as an extension and preparatory vehicle for the
1999 NATO military aggression than as a civil diplomatic mission as defined
by the Yugoslavia-OSCE October 1998 Agreement.

A European Security system should be a matter of right and the duty of all
and each European country and not a monopoly of any regional organization,
be it NATO or any other.

All European countries should have equal guaranties for their own security.
A European Security System should be worked out through diplomatic
consultations which will take time and effort, and be finalized at the
European Summit Conference adopting a European Security Treaty.
