CIS INTER-PARL ASSEMBLY MEETING OPENS IN ST PETERSBURG
Addressing the meeting, Russian Federation Council Speaker Sergei Mironov pointed out the most important agenda issues, such as the new wording of the model law on fight against terrorism.
The document will allow solving problems more effectively in fighting against terrorism and ensuring public security and stable work of important facilities.
On the agenda is also a draft document on a CIS interstate electoral council that is expected to promote implementation of the convention on democratic election standards, election rights and freedoms in CIS member states.
It will be a common contribution to democracy development, Mironov believes.
The speaker also noted the importance of a model law on participation of a CIS country in peacekeeping operations and recommendations for legislation harmonization in the area of financial market functioning.
