The Council of Europe and the League of Arab have agreed to focus their cooperation on the 7th Euro-Arab Youth Forum, which is to be preceded by a study about the impact and results of the cooperation.

The forum should focus on youth, peace and security so as to follow-up on the regional consultation held in Fez with UNFPA and, in particular, to understand and apply the principles of the United Security Council Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security to Euro-Arab Youth cooperation.
