Abstract

OSCE CHRONICLE Lisbon Sumit mandates the revision of the CFE Treaty Arie Bloed 1. Lisbon Summit was no spectacular event The OSCE Summit meeting in Lisbon on 2 and 3 December 1996 was clearly less spectacular than the previous summit in Budapest two years before. Both summits had one thing in common: predominant attention to security problems, in particular issues which are not directly on the OSCE agenda itself, such as the extension of NATO. Already two years before, the Russian President Yeltsin used the OSCE forum to warn of a 'Cold Peace' if NATO would continue its plans to admit a few former Warsaw Pact states into its ranks. In Lisbon the Russians had to face the fact that NATO had already decided on the extension, but leaving it still open as to which states and under which modalities. The Russian Prime Minister Chernomyrdin (President Yeltsin was still recovering from his bypass operation) again strongly warned against the NATO extension which the Russians clearly see as a threat. Although the American Vice-President Gore tried to explain to his 'friend' that the extension is not airned against the Russian Federation, he was certainly not successful. The Russians admitted
