Azerbaijani MPs are attending the 10th plenary session of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA) in Istanbul. The session brings together delegates from 31 countries.

The three-day program focuses on cooperation on social, economic, cultural, and political affairs under the theme “Sustaining Peace and Development in Asia,” according to Hurriyet Daily News.

Earlier on November 21, the APA’s 2nd Executive Council meeting was held with delegates from each member parliament. The delegates adopted the agenda of the 10th plenary session, and APA Secretary-General Mohammad Reza Majidi addressed the meeting. Turkey took over the APA presidency from Cambodia after last year’s APA Plenary Session in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The APA will convene under the Turkish presidency for the next two years.
