Andrei Klimov: Baku hosts 7th ICAAP General Assembly at decent level
Baku's organization of the 7th General Assembly of the Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) in 2012 was decent, a member of the ICAAP Standing Committee, Deputy Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the Federation Council, chair of the Commission for Foreign Affairs of the Presidium of All-Russia Political Party Andrei Klimov said, speaking with Vestnik Kavkaza on the sidelines of the presentation of the program of the 10th ICAAP General Assembly, which will be held in Moscow on October 25-26 for the first time.
"I testify that the General Assembly in Baku was held at a good level. I presided over one of the plenary sessions there and I remember that there was a very lively discussion. In general, the level of the event was very worthy, I think," he said.
Andrei Klimov said that Azerbaijan's ICAAP member parties received invitations to the General Assembly in Moscow from the organization’s general secretariat as well as others. "Azerbaijan regularly participates in these events, all political parties-members of ICAAP have received appropriate invitations, and we will be glad to see all ICAAP members," the senator stressed.
He also spoke about the agenda of the 10th General Assembly. "We will have two extremely important topics: the role of political parties in ensuring international security and the expansion of mutually beneficial social and economic cooperation. The current trade wars cannot but worry us. We cannot ensure the stable development of humanity in the 21st century without ensuring security. After all, sustainable development is not possible in the context of wars, as well as in the absence of mutually beneficial active socio-economic relations and programs," Andrei Klimov said.
"On the sidelines of the main events, we agreed to hold a plenary session on the role of political parties in preventing interference in internal affairs. We plan to call on political parties, first, to refrain from it, and second, to do everything to prevent such a violation of international law," the Deputy Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the Federation Council concluded.
