      ii. - Special rules governing relations between the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the parliamentary and inter-parliamentary assemblies of non-member States

      (adopted by the Standing Committee on 2 July 1970 See Progress Report of the Bureau and the Standing Committee,
Doc. 2825, Chapter VIII, of which the Assembly took note on 18 September
1970.)
      1. The Bureau of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe shall be responsible for relations with the parliamentary and inter-parliamentary assemblies of non-member states.
      2. Without encroaching upon the competence and prerogatives assigned to the Assembly and the Standing Committee in the Rules of Procedure of the Assembly, the Bureau shall organise any meetings with the above-mentioned assemblies, in particular by fixing dates, procedure and subjects for discussion.
      3. When the Assembly receives an invitation from a parliamentary or inter-parliamentary assembly of non-member states, the Bureau shall be required, on the basis of the appropriations available, to advise whether or not to accept the invitation and appoint, whenever necessary, the members, leader and spokesmen of the Assembly delegation. The Bureau shall also decide what travel arrangements are appropriate.
      4. The Bureau may co-opt other members of the Assembly in the light of their special qualifications, to assist it in carrying out the tasks described above. It may also instruct a general or an ad hoc committee to undertake any necessary preparatory work.
      5. The Bureau shall inform the Assembly of every development in the field of relations with the parliamentary or inter-parliamentary assemblies of non-member states when presenting the progress report provided for in [Rules 26.3. and 33.5. ] of the Assembly’s Rules of Procedure. It may refer all or part of the report of a meeting arranged between the Assembly, or one of its delegations, and any other parliamentary or inter-parliamentary assembly or delegation, to one or more of the Committees of the Council of Europe Assembly with instructions that these Committees report to the Assembly.
