Abdusattor Esoev stressed the importance to continue cooperation between the International Organization for Migration and the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly, including in accordance with the Cooperation Agreement between the Interparliamentary Assembly of the CIS Member States and the International Organization for Migration, signed by V. Matvienko, Chairman of the IPA CIS Council, and W.L. Swing, IOM Director General, on 17 May 2012.

The parties outlined possible areas for joint activities, including during the process of preparing a model Migration Code of the CIS Member States. The International Organization for Migration is ready to provide expert support for model laws in the field of migration.
