President to the CIS Assembly: 'We pursue the same objectives'

Addressing the Inter-parliamentary Assembly of the member nations of the CIS, the PACE President today welcomed the close co-operation developed during the last 20 years between the two bodies.

“We pursue the same objectives, in particular building a common legal space for our continent, based on shared principles and standards, and promoting parliamentary dialogue. We should continue and develop further our co-operation, focusing on concrete issues and initiatives of common interest such as counteracting international terrorism and managing migration and the refugee crisis,” said Pedro Agramunt.
