IPU Meeting to Focus on Extremism

IPU Meeting to Focus on Extremism

A parliamentarian has said the campaign against terrorism and religious extremism, which are major global threats, will be one of the main themes to be discussed in this year’s Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) conference in Geneva, Switzerland.  
Moayed Hosseini Sadr said the 131st IPU Assembly will be held from 12 to 16 October and Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani will attend the meeting.
He added it is expected that about 35 parliament speakers along with other high-profile parliamentary delegations will take part in the conference, IRNA quoted him as saying. The lawmaker also said the Iranian delegation will comprise seven MPs including one woman.
Established in 1889 the union is the focal point for worldwide parliamentary dialogue.  The IPU works closely with the United Nations. It also cooperates with international intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations.  
The IPU includes 145 parliament member states which convene assemblies twice a year (in the spring and autumn) every time in a different country. The organization is financed primarily by its members and has its headquarters in Geneva.
