PAM AT THE OSCE MEETING ON POLITICO-MILITARY ASPECTS OF SECURITY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) will be participating at the Regional Conference on the OSCE Code of Conduct on Politico-Military Aspects of Security for the Mediterranean Region, to be held in Malta on 11-13 September, 2013.


The objectives of this conference, organized by the Conflict Prevention Centre (CPC) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), are to raise awareness and to present the countries of the Mediterranean Region with the Code of Conduct (including its recent Arabic translation) as a key normative document for security sector governance as well as to engage in discussion and dialogue about its principles and commitments. The conference is directed to the countries of the Mediterranean region, in particular to the OSCE Mediterranean Partners for Co-operation (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia) and the OSCE participating States bordering the Mediterranean Sea.


At the OSCE conference in Malta, PAM Secretary General, Ambassador Sergio Piazzi will be also moderating the session dedicated to the intervention of Hon. Makis Voridis (Greece), Chair of the General Committee on Political Affairs and Security of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly.


One of the priority missions of PAM is to foster and build confidence among Mediterranean States, guarantee regional security, stability and peace by creating a common approach through parliamentary diplomacy. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean has been particularly active in the light of the events that have characterized the unprecedented civilian revolt in a number of North Africa countries bordering the Mediterranean, including the mission in Syria a few week ago, to discuss with the local authorities, UN Agencies and other international organizations, the facilitation of the much needed humanitarian assistance to the Syrian population. Efforts have also been directed to assist in the democratic processes in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, aimed at implementing the best institutional changes according to national requirements, for a wider participation of the citizens in the administration of their countries. “Security depends on stability, the respect of human rights and the rule of law. Parliaments have a primary role in establishing the right conditions through far reaching legislation that safeguards the rights of all citizens”, the PAM Secretary General commented.//
