Parliamentary diplomacy and its methods often have results
that are hard to achieve through other conventional channels. Constant
contacts with parliaments abroad not only help members of parliament
to share experiences but also foster understanding between political
elites in the countries concerned.
The Assembly is invited to decide on a series of measures
to enhance parliamentary diplomacy and recommend that national governments
involve parliamentary representatives more extensively in their relations
with the United Nations and other international institutions, and
more generally in the international decision-making process.
