The Interparliamentary Union defends dialogue against conflicts

The head of the organization pointed out in a press conference that wherever the war guns are sounded, the IPU is trying to find points for negotiation.

In this regard, he discussed the situation in Ukraine, where a high-level parliamentary task force was created, which met with representatives of the two conflicting countries to encourage talks.

We did not achieve the expected result, he said, and he argued that they will continue to find solutions through dialogue.

He added that in the case of the Middle East, the commission dealing with the area was immediately mobilized to request the unconditional release of hostages in Israel and the creation of humanitarian corridors for the Palestinian population.

He considered that this situation has no definitive solution until the United Nations resolution on the creation of two states, Israel and Palestine, is implemented.

Pacheco also discussed the work in countries on the African continent where there have been recent coups d’état and commented that the IPU is working with the parliaments created there to try to promote a rapid return to democracy.

The Secretary General of the IPU, Martin Chungong, also discussed the talks with the parliamentary leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan, a topic that will also be discussed during the days of the IPU General Assembly, which will meet in Luanda until October 27.

Pacheco emphasized the broad participation of the event, with more than 1,300 delegates from 130 countries, of which more than 50 are heads of parliament.

He emphasized the role of Angola as the headquarters due to its intense work, which resulted in an impeccable welcome, adding that all those who came to Luanda would become ambassadors of the country.

He stressed that the main theme of the Assembly is peace, at a time when the world is involved in many conflicts and where parliamentary action can help dialogue and resolve differences.

She considers Angola to be an example of how to overcome them and learn to live in peace, something Chungong agrees with, who also praises Angolan work in empowering women.
