Parliamentary Assembly
Assembly debate on 26 April 2001 (15th Sitting) (see Doc. 9032, report of the Political Affairs Committee, rapporteur: Mr Taylor, Doc. 9060, opinion of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, rapporteur: Mr Lintner, and Doc. 9054, opinion of the Social, Health and Family Affairs Committee, rapporteur: Mr Pavlidis). Text adopted by the Assembly on 26 April 2001 (15th Sitting).

The Assembly, recalling its previous texts, namely Resolution 1013 (1993), Recommendation 1221 (1993), Resolution 1103 (1996), Resolution 1156 (1998), Resolution 1183 (1999) and Resolution 1245 (2001) on the Middle East conflict, asks the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe to invite member governments of the Council of Europe:

1 to give their full support to peace efforts and in this context to observation initiatives such as the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH), to the conclusions of the international fact-finding commission, chaired by US Senator Mitchell, set up to examine the causes of the outbreak of violence;
2 to promote the concept of an organisation for security and co-operation in the Middle East (OSCME), as previously suggested by the Assembly, in particular, in the post-negotiation phase, to consolidate peace and to transform non-belligerency into stable co-operation.
