    Background: The Italian Communist Party called on Saturday (19 April) for a new type of world co-operation to overcome the present global economic crisis.

    Speaking at the opening of a two-day meeting in Rome of European Communist Parties on economic co-operation in Europe, Italian delegate Giorgio Amendola said: "The solution to the world economic crisis is the development of world co-operation--and that is something more than peaceful co-existence."
    Signor Amendola also told the meeting, attended by 40 delegates representing 18 Communist Parties, that the European Common Market should be reformed to give it a "democratic legitimacy" based on direct elections.

    Earlier, in his opening address, the Italian Communist Party Secretary, Enrico Berlinguer, said this week's meeting was a preliminary step toward a summit conferences of European Communist Parties to be held in Berlin after the European Security Conference, which he said could take place this summer at the highest level.

    Signor Berlinguer stressed the Italian Party's support for the Security Conference, which he said would be a step toward establishing collective security and co-operation in place of a balance between opposing blocs.

    The Communist summit would be a meeting of autonomous and independent parties sharing their different experience and ideas, he said.
