A parliamentary delegation led by the President himself has been visiting Belgrade since Sunday, 13 October. It is within the framework of the 141st Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly , which brings together more than 700 participants.

Five items are on the agenda of the meeting, which is being held from 13 to 17 October in Belgrade. These include the election of the President and Vice-Presidents of the 141st Assembly; consideration of requests for the inclusion of an emergency item on the Assembly’s agenda; general debate on Strengthening international law: parliamentary roles and mechanisms, and the contribution of regional cooperation; achieving the goal of universal health coverage by 2030: the role of parliaments in guaranteeing the right to health; presentation of reports of the Standing Committees on Peace and International Security; sustainable development, finance and trade.

Representatives of parliaments from all over the world will reflect on several themes in order to promote parliamentary roles and mechanisms and the contribution of regional cooperation to the strengthening of international law. This will take place under the watchful eye of all the organs of the Union, namely the Governing Council, the Standing Committees, the Committee on the Human Rights of Parliamentarians, the Committee on Middle East Questions, as well as the Forum of Women Parliamentarians and the Forum of Young Parliamentarians. It should be noted that the theme around which the reflections will focus is “strengthening international law: parliamentary roles and mechanisms, and the contribution of regional cooperation”.
