The 10th plenary session of the Global Parliament for Tolerance and Peace kicked off Thursday in Rabat. This session, held from 13 to 15 July in Rabat and Dakhla, is attended by more than 80 parliamentarians from different countries and examines several topics related to tolerance and peace. On Wednesday, the Board of the International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace held a meeting, in addition to the meetings of the Parliament’s Internal Committees in charge of Peace-building, Women and Youth Committee, Foreign Affairs, Sustainable Development, Legal Affairs, and Counter-Terrorism. This Parliament is one of the most important international parliaments specialized in spreading the values of tolerance and peace. The International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace discusses issues referred to it by the General Assembly and the Presidium. It also examines international developments related to tolerance and peace and makes appropriate recommendations. It is one of the bodies of the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace (CGTP), which is an international organization that enshrines and disseminates the noble values of tolerance and peace among peoples and states according to the principles of the United Nations. The GCTP convenes its international parliament once every quarter and can hold an extraordinary session if necessary. It works to spread the culture of tolerance and aims, among other things, to combat discrimination, racism, intolerance and religious, ethnic and sectarian extremism and to develop the rules of international law promoting the principles of tolerance for peace.
