FNC Speaker meets top French MP

PARIS, — National parliaments are playing a vital role in advancing their countries’ policies, in pursuit of the aspirations of their peoples, said Dr. Amal Abdullah Al Qubaisi, Speaker of the Federal National Council (FNC), in Paris today.

”There is a more pressing need than ever before for greater co-ordination, co-operation and consultation between parliaments in like-mind countries, which have strategic visions towards events and developments that pose risks to international security and peace,” Dr. Al Qubaisi said, during a meeting with Elisabeth Guigou, Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, French National Assembly, as part of Al Qubaisi’s visit to France.

Al Qubaisi also outlined the UAE’s efforts in addressing regional and international humanitarian and development challenges, including the Syrian refugee crisis, countering terrorism and extremism.

The two sides stressed the importance of energising joint parliamentary cooperation in supporting international efforts to counter terrorism and extremist groups, and in promoting the values of justice, tolerance and equality, while denouncing discrimination in regards to religions, race or sect. The two sides also emphasised the need for joint co-ordination of stances towards urgent international humanitarian crises and their continuing fallouts.
