[26.03.24] CIS ministers discuss agenda of premiers session on April 16

CIS foreign ministers discussed Friday the agenda of the upcoming meeting of the CIS Council of Prime Ministers, due to take place in Kyrgyzstan on April 16.
 
The ministers decided to invite to that meeting Executive Secretary of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Zhang Deguang.
 
In the course of the Friday session, the Council of CIS foreign ministers struck out from the agenda - on Georgia's proposal -- the draft decision regarding amendments to the provision on CIS collective peacekeeping forces.
 
Three issues were removed from the agenda on Russia's proposal, Tatyana Yegorova, the spokeswoman for the chairman of the CIS executive committee, told Itar-Tass.
 
They are the draft concept of the development of television broadcasting in the Commonwealth of Independent States, and the agreements on a special representative (who is to head the mission to prevent and settle conflicts on CIS territory) and the permanent consultative commission on peacekeeping under the CIS Council of foreign ministers.
 
The issues have been removed due to "incomplete inter-state procedures," the spokeswoman said.
 
In all, the foreign ministers discussed 18 issues, which will be on the agenda of the upcoming session of the Council of CIS Prime Ministers and the Council of CIS presidents.
 
The Council of CIS foreign ministers will convene for its next meeting in Astana on April 15, ahead of the CIS summit.
