Didier Burkhalter has made a statement at the NATO summit in Chicago.
Speaking as a member of the Partnership for Peace, the foreign minister said Switzerland will continue to support the KFOR troops in Kosovo.
Burkhalter added that NATO will engage further in Afghanistan, without specifying whether that would see Swiss involvement.
He also called on states to collaborate against new threats, recently judged risky for Switzerland, such as cyber crime.
Switzerland’s attendance at the summit has been seen as a bridge builder for when it chairs the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in 2014.
