Themed “Greater Eurasia: Dialogue. Trust. Partnership”, the meeting brought together 65 parliamentary delegations from European and Asian countries and 14 international and inter-parliamentary organizations.

At the MSEAP 4, parliamentarians discuss ways of ensuring safe and sustainable development of the Eurasian continent and the implementation of major integration economic projects of the 21st century.

In addition to plenary sessions, dozens of bilateral meetings are scheduled to be held on the sidelines of the event, enabling parliamentarians to exchange law-making experience and coordinate efforts and actions towards increasing the wellbeing of their peoples.

Following the opening ceremony in the morning, participants attended three plenary sessions and adopted a statement in the afternoon.

MSEAP is a Eurasian parliamentary cooperation mechanism initiated by the Chairman of the State Duma of Russia and the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea.

The annual meeting offers a chance for legislative bodies in the world’s largest continent to coordinate their actions and improve the role of parliamentary diplomacy as well as to exchange ideas to address global challenges.

The final document of MSEAP is the Joint Statement signed by heads of the participating delegations.

It was first held in Russia in 2016.
