Interparliamentary co-operation in the Mediterranean and Black Sea basins

Order 569 (2001)

Parliamentary Assembly
Assembly debate on 26 January 2001 (8th Sitting) (see Doc. 8921, report of the Committee on the Environment, Regional Planning and Local Authorities, rapporteur: Mr Toshev). Text adopted by the Assembly on 26 January 2001 (8th Sitting).
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.
