A recommendation to end the monitoring of Turkey, measures to combat the "domestic slavery" and a call for an end to political interference in the media in Italy were among issues during the Parliamentary Assembly's summer session. An urgent debate on the "Contribution of the Council of Europe to the settlement of the situation in Irak" took place on Thursday 24 June.

Kjell Magne Bondevik, Prime Minister of Norway and Robert Kotcharian, President of Armenia, addressed the Assembly. European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet participated in the debate on "The euro and the Greater Europe" and EBRD President Jean Lemierre in the debate on "The contribution of the EBRD to economic development in central and eastern Europe".

Norwegian Foreign Affairs Minister Jan Petersen, who is chairing the Committee of Ministers, presented the communication from the Committee of Ministers (22 June).

The Assembly also elected Terry Davis Secretary General of the Council of Europe.
