    The Committee of Ministers, under the terms of Articles 15.a and 16 of the Statute of the Council of Europe,

    Having regard to the Parliamentary Assembly's proposals for institutional reforms within the Council of Europe;

    Resolves as follows :

I.    Opening of conventions and agreements for signature

II.    Partial Agreements

In accordance with the Statutory Resolution on Partial and Enlarged Agreements, decisions authorising certain member states to pursue an activity as a Partial Agreement shall be taken by a two-thirds majority of the Representatives casting a vote and a majority of the Representatives entitled to sit on the Committee, as set out in Article 20.d of the Statute.
