The Russian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly session, which is to be held in Ottawa, Canada, on October 5-10, will propose to debate cooperation in legislation against international terrorism, Lyubov Sliska, deputy speaker of Russia's lower house of parliament, the State Duma, who will lead the delegation, announced Thursday. According to her, the Russian delegation will also insist that a report on prospects of democratic reforms in Russia's enclave Kaliningrad Region, in Belarus, and in Yugoslavia not be heard at the forum. The report is to be presented by French legislator Guy-Michel Chauveau. In addition, the Russian members of parliament plan to voice concern about NATO's recent Operation Essential Harvest in Macedonia, which Sliska says has failed. She added that "for the first time ever, there are no Chechnya issues" on the forum's tentative agenda.
