The 116th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly Is On
April 30th, 2007

The 116th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly opened Sunday evening (4/29/07) in Indonesia’s resort of Bali, and more than 1,300 delegates from 126 countries are attending the six-day meeting.

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono officially opened the meeting by beating gong.

The IPU meeting would discuss issues such as climate change, the MiddleEast situation and the strengthening of democracy.

Chairman of the Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation Board of the House of Representatives, Abdillah Thoha, said earlier that the Middle East issue is expected to get priority because the impact of the problem is enormous.

“If the United States attacks Iran the price of oil could reach 100 U.S. dollars per barrel. And this would createa great problem,” he said.

The IPU assembly meeting will also discuss political, economic and social situations in the world; poverty and unemployment; the importance of interfaith harmony in the globalization era; human rights as well as women’s representation and violence against children.

Established in 1889 and headquartered in Geneva, the IPU, the oldest multilateral political organization, currently has 148 affiliated national parliaments and seven associated regional assemblies. The world organization of parliaments also has an office in New York, which acts as its permanent observer to the United Nations.
