Crisis in Syria discussed in PAM and UN-LAS Joint Special Representative to Syria meeting

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean met UN-League of Arab States Joint Special Representative Lakhdar Brahimi, as part of its mission to New York on 26 September, on the occasion of the 67th United Nations General Assembly.
 
The PAM delegation, led by Vice President, Sen. Francesco Amoruso (Italy),  expressed its deep concern on the situation in Syria and reiterated its offer to put at the disposal of the UN the instruments of parliamentary diplomacy, entrusted to the Assembly by its States, of which Syria, is a founding member.
 
PAM has already pledged its support to the diplomatic initiatives of former UN-Arab League Joint Special Envoy for Syria, H.E. Kofi Annan, and actively participated in all the sessions of the Syrian Humanitarian Forum in Geneva, where it delivered a strong message of support of the Assembly to identify an appropriate common approach and to link the efforts of traditional and parliamentary diplomacy.
 
To this effect PAM informed H.E. Brahimi that it is preparing, with the support of the Lebanese parliament and the Russian diplomacy, a mission to Damascus, in line with the efforts of the international community to bring to an end the suffering of the Syrian people and for stability in the region.
 
PAM Secretary General also held a bilateral meeting, on 27 September, with the Syrian Delegation attending the General Assembly.

“The PAM parliamentary network is at the full disposal of H.E. Brahimi to support his initiatives in the region and to convey the results of his efforts to Mediterranean parliamentarians, including in the framework of a future international parliamentary meeting to be organized by PAM and the United Nations”, commented Sen. Amoruso at the end of the meeting.//
