Mr. Speaker, next year, Canada will host an international conference on children affected by war.
This summit will bring together officials representing governments, international organizations and various groups from all parts of the world. The objective is to develop a global plan of action for all problems experienced by children who are affected by conflicts.
I should point out that, two years ago, Canada helped create a similar coalition concerning the land mines treaty. I had the honour of being part of that delegation.
Canada is now hoping to start a process to protect children, who are hard hit by conflicts around the world.
