recalled that the current format includes meetings twice a year, but “that is not enough”, thus, proposals for holding round tables and conferences were announced at today's meeting.

“Maybe it would be right for us to develop new formats taking into account the challenges of the time,” said Vyacheslav Volodin.

He instructed the CSTO PA Secretariat to study the experience of similar structures, as parliamentary assemblies, and analyze the proposals announced at the today's meeting.

“And, of course, there should be our own proposals, based on the realities of the times, so that we can discuss those proposals before the next meeting of the council,” said Vyacheslav Volodin.

“We should consider that issue and, maybe, take a decision later that will help to make the CSTO PA more productive and effective in solving the tasks,” he said.
