Angola Preparing For Kimberley Process Intersessional Meeting

21/06/2015 10:38

Kimberley Process (KP) Chair Angola is preparing to host the organization’s intersessional meeting which starts on Monday and runs until June 26. The meeting will bring together more than 200 delegates from 54 members representing 81 countries to debate its activities since the plenary meeting held in China last November 2014 and to discuss subjects for the plenary session due to be held in Luanda in November.
One of the most contentious issues at the intersessional meeting will be a decision on which country will be the Deputy Chair since that country will become the KP Chair in 2016. The candidates at last year's plenary meeting were Australia and the United Arab Emirates (Dubai) but members were unable to reach a consensus decision.
