MINSK, 28 October (BelTA) – The CIS Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (CIS IPA) is an open platform for discussing urgent and vital issues, Chairperson of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Natalya Kochanova said following the CIS IPA events in Samarkand, Uzbekistan on 28 October, BelTA has learned.

“It is gratifying that the CIS IPA acts as an open venue for discussing relevant, vital and at the same time complicated topics such as legislative support for electoral processes and many other issues raised during the Assembly events. What is even more important is that this platform makes it possible to find absolutely correct and verified solutions. I am convinced that the current role of MPs in international activities is very important. The parliamentary corps is a real and authoritative social and political force, which is designed to protect the national interests of our countries,” said Natalya Kochanova.

According to her, CIS MPs should be united as never before. “They need to demonstrate integrity in common approaches, speak from identical positions and provide each other with guaranteed support at international platforms. Only the further strengthening of our partnership associations and joint coordinated work will help us cope with the challenges of our time. We must take effective measures to enhance the role of the CIS member states in regional associations, strive to receive greater benefits from the political support of the partner countries. We should be more vocal,” the speaker said.

“I sincerely thank all the parliamentary delegations, all the participants of the Assembly events for the fruitful work, constructive proposals and ideas, which will undoubtedly find worthy application in our inter-parliamentary activities and will serve the further development of cooperation of the CIS countries,” Natalya Kochanova stressed.
