Summary of the discussion:

It is important to find the common ideas among us and other peace or social movements. The object of COMT is to bring an end to war. If our national movements can improve connections with international NGOs.

CPTI can take part in ways that are effective. Participation in major international peace gatherings should be well prepared in advance by our national movements with respect to speakers, workshops, displays, materials in various languages, finances, and arrangements for travel and lodging.

In practice CPTI is already cooperating with other NGOs at the UN level in Geneva and New York.
