The world is facing a number of dangers in a global security landscape that "is shifting dramatically", according to the UN Secretary-General.

Addressing the Permanent Council of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna on Tuesday, Ban Ki-moon said that many countries have achieved stability and progress.

But he said many threats remain.

"The global security landscape is shifting dramatically. Civil conflicts, coupled with terrorism, organized crime, illegal drug-trafficking, and health crises such as Ebola, are threatening millions of people. More often than not, these dangers transcend borders."(23")

The Secretary-General said that the OSCE, with a large membership, a broad mandate and a consensus-based culture, is well-placed to maintain a constructive dialogue that can lead to sustainable solutions.
