      xii. - Co-operation agreement between the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the Latin American Parliament (5 December 2008) Ratified
by the Parliamentary Assembly on 26 January 2009 (see Doc. 11793
part I).

      I. Aim of the Agreement
      1. The aim of the agreement is to enhance co-operation between the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) and the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino), while fully respecting their respective competencies. In view of their common concerns and complementarity at intercontinental level, the two assemblies agree to establish a political dialogue, particularly with a view to promoting the principles of parliamentary democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
      2. The Parlatino will encourage the competent authorities to make use of the possibilities to sign, ratify or accede to the relevant Council of Europe conventions, which are open to non-member states, as well as the expertise offered by the European Commission for Democracy through Law (“Venice Commission”) and by the European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity (“North-South Centre”).
      3. In particular, the Parlatino and the PACE will endeavour to encourage the competent Latin American authorities to introduce a moratorium on executions and abolish the death penalty, where necessary.
      II. Reciprocal Representation
      4. The PACE and the Parlatino will invite each other to be represented at their respective statutory plenary meetings. The Presidents will be invited, at appropriate intervals, to address each other’s sessions.
      5. The same arrangements will apply to ad hoc meetings, such as conferences, seminars, symposia and other events, organised by the PACE or the Parlatino.
      III. Joint Activities
      6. Based on their respective mandates, the PACE and the Parlatino may jointly organise, or co-operate in the organisation of, specific events which fall in areas of common concern, notably parliamentary democracy, rule of law, human rights and North-South relations.
      IV. Working Arrangements
      7. The PACE will put at the disposal of the Parlatino its expertise on parliamentary practice and procedure.
      8. The PACE and the Parlatino will exchange official documentation, including orders of business of statutory meetings and adopted resolutions and recommendations, on a regular basis.
      9. Documents of mutual interest may be sent to members of the two assemblies. When appropriate the PACE and the Parlatino may submit written communications on subjects under consideration in the other Assembly.
      10. Officials of PACE and the Parlatino’s secretariats will meet for consultations at suitable intervals to strengthen co-operation and co-ordination between the two assemblies.
      11. The PACE is ready to organise traineeships in the framework of this Agreement.
      V. Final Provision
      12. This Co-operation Agreement enters into force on the day of its signature by both parties. It may be amended by mutual consent, or suspended or annulled by either one of the parties.
