Socialist International holds its meeting in St Petersburg

Moscow, Oct 20 (UNI) Coinciding with the 137th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in St Petersburg from 14 to 18 October 201, the Socialist International (SI) held its usual meeting of parliamentarians from the social democratic political family to exchange views on key issues for debate and decisions due to be taken by the Assembly of the IPU and to discuss issues of common concern on the international agenda. According to a press release by the SI on Friday, the meeting, chaired by the SI Secretary General, included among its participants a good number of Speakers and Deputy Speakers of Parliament. Those present included representatives from Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Djibouti, Dominican Republic, Finland, Ghana, Guinea, Italy, Mali, Nicaragua, Namibia, Niger, Palestine, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, Uruguay, Venezuela, Zambia, and from the Global Fund. The participants received a first-hand report from the head of the Palestinian delegation to the talks that had just concluded in Egypt between Fatah and Hamas for reconciliation and national unity. These positive developments were welcomed, and seen as a major contribution and a catalyst to move forward the stalled process for the two-state solution and peace in the region. Participants shared information on developments in different regions and countries, among them the situation in the Sahel and efforts to end terror and secure peace, with contributions from countries in that region and others. Democracy was also a strong theme in the exchanges, with a particular focus on the situation in Venezuela. The Secretary General reported on various activities of the Socialist International and the work ahead following the decisions of the last Council and Congress, and on its global work in favour of democracy, the resolution of conflicts, and for greater equality in the world economy.UNi XC-SNU 0932
