Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Brigadier-General Howard, in your document, you said that the Afghan National Army was well on its way to becoming a viable and self-sustaining military force. How long before it is?

Do you think the 2011 departure date for soldiers in Afghanistan will be the same for those who provide support to the Afghan army?

You think the departure date will be the same. Those who provide support to the Afghan army will leave when the combat troops do.

Do you know the proportions of the ethnic groups that make up the army? How many Pashtun, and so on?

Is it possible that the Taliban are infiltrating the Afghan army? Is there a way to screen for that? Is this a problem you have had to deal with?

Since there is virtually no justice system, there must not be much in the way of criminal record statistics. Regardless, a Taliban does not necessarily have a criminal record. It could just be someone who is involved because of their religious values and so forth.

I want to tell you that a UN official appeared on television the night before last and said that the no-fly list did not apply to citizens re-entering their country. That is crystal clear, so we do not even need a legal opinion. But if so, we will ask for one.
There are already 200 people who are willing to pay the airfare. When the only thing left to do is find money for the airfare, if the committee does not happen to have it, we will find some.

We intend to support the motion. As for the United Nations' terrorist no-fly list, the Convention clearly states that the list does not apply in the case of persons wishing to return to their country of origin. Persons clearly have the right to do that.
The aim of the motion is simply to bring home to this country someone who, under the Convention, clearly has the right to return. If his return makes the Canadian Embassy in Khartoum a safer place, then so much the better.
Seriously though, I think it is high time for the committee to hear from Mr. Abdelrazik and for his rights to be upheld.

I would remind Mr. Abbott that before the steering committee met, we discussed this matter and the parliamentary secretary told us that he would have special information to convey to us further to the steering committee meeting that might make us reconsider our position.
I put the question to him several times on that occasion, and I was never given any additional piece of information that might explain why the rights provided for under the international convention did not apply in this case. We were not given any information in that regard.

I just have a quick comment.
Mr. Pasaribu, you explained quite clearly how problems such as climate change, the financial crisis and the economic slowdown are fundamentally global problems at this point in time.
In my view, this state of affairs is the result of the failure on the part of the leaders of a number of countries to face up to these crises. What's more, parliamentarians are responsible for not ensuring that an adequate number of international structures were in place. We have parliamentary associations and friendship groups, such as the Canada-Indonesia friendship group.
Would you be in favour of inviting a group of about twenty parliamentarians from Indonesia to take part in an Internet exchange of views on these issues? This is the type of discussions that people around the world are engaging in these days.
Furthermore, would you care to venture an opinion on the resurgence of the importance of the State? People have come to realize that neo-liberalism doesn't amount to anything, that more adequate safeguards and controls need to be re-introduced and that much work needs to be done to come up with effective international safeguards.

I think we can draw a distinction between adopting the motion today and deciding what steps to take to get him here.
I'm in favour of adopting the motion as it now stands, to extending an invitation to him to appear before the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade and to getting the steering committee tomorrow to look into how we are going to proceed.
As for the substance of the matter, I'm prepared to vote immediately in favour of the motion.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Bonotto, are there comparative tables showing similar situations in major European countries? As an expert in the area, do you have tables of that kind that would let us see whether the numbers are approximately the same? For example, you mentioned 100,000 euros within 10 days of a death. Is that intended to standardize the rules, or does each country operate individually?

Are there organizations in Italy established to defend the rights of military veterans that could send us an evaluation of how effective these programs are?

Basically, I want to know if you have evaluations showing the satisfaction rate among retired or disabled veterans, even the families of those affected. Has an evaluation been done to measure satisfaction with these programs?
