1 The Assembly refers to its Recommendation 1502 (2001) and its Resolution 1242 (2001) on interparliamentary co-operation in the Mediterranean and Black Sea basins.
2 It recalls the importance it attaches to peace, democratic stability and sustainable development in these regions.
3 It is convinced that closer co-operation with national parliaments as proposed at the end of the 6th Interparliamentary Conference of the Mediterranean and Black Sea Basins could make a major contribution to this and that the follow-up to the final declaration of the conference is an excellent opportunity to translate this initiative into practice.
4 Accordingly, it instructs its Committee on Environment and Agriculture to implement those proposals and to that end:
4.1 to organise regular meetings with the committees in the countries of both basins dealing with problems concerning sustainable development, in order to identify areas for closer co-operation leading to tangible results;
4.2 to develop in the same spirit co-operation with the equivalent committees of the European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Co-operation (Pabsec) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
