On hand were President Andrés Pastrana, Executive Secretary Antonio López-Istúriz, First Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary, former Prime Minister of Slovenia Janez Jansa, Lebanese President Amine Gemayel, and a significant number of leaders from all the regional divisions where we are active.
During the session ten very important resolutions were approved, which can be reviewed on this webpage, and the Mauritius’s PMSD (Parti Social Mauricien Social Democrate) became a member.
