Foreign ministers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) are set to start a two-day informal meeting at a resort area outside Kazakhstan's commercial capital Almaty.

Kazakh Foreign Ministry spokesman Askar Abdrakhmanov said security in Europe and Eurasia as well as the situations in southern Kyrgyzstan and in Afghanistan will be on the agenda.

Kazakhstan, the current OSCE chairman, is also hoping to push forward its call to later this year host the first OSCE summit since 1999.
