Kuwait asserts need of coordination among Asian parliaments
November 22, 2017, 6:18 am

Kuwait parliament speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim Tuesday asserted importance of coordination among Asian parliaments to be more effective at the international level.

Al-Ghanim was making a joint statement to KUNA and Kuwait TV on sidelines of the 10th plenary session of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA).

He said there was an agreement among APA members that they should unite over issues discussed by the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), mirroring the parliaments in Europe and Latin America.

The Asian continent, he added, was facing many crises and challenges which required coordination.

Speaker of the Turkish Parliament Ismail Kahraman, addressing the plenary session earlier, called for boosting cooperation among the APA members to guarantee sustainability of development and peace.
The Asian parliamentarians discussed how the APA could play a bigger role in achieving sustainable development and peace in Asia.

The three-day gathering's program will discuss cooperation on social, economic, cultural, and political affairs under the theme "Sustaining Peace and Development in Asia." Earlier Tuesday, the APA's 2nd Executive Council meeting was held with delegates from each member parliament.

Turkey took over the APA presidency from Cambodia after last year's APA Plenary Session in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The APA will convene under the Turkish presidency for the next two years.
