CAIRO - 10 February 2018: The third conference of the Arab Parliaments and Arab Parliamentary Speakers kicked off on Saturday at the headquarters of the Arab League General Secretariat.
The conference is attended by Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit, Arab Parliament Speaker Meshal bin Fahmi al Salami and the presidents of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA) and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM).
A comprehensive Arab document on fighting terrorism and extremist ideology is expected to be issued by this year’s conference, to be referred to the 29th Arab Summit, set for Riyadh in March, for endorsement.
The document will provide a comprehensive vision aimed at eradicating terrorism at all social, intellectual, economic and security levels in the entire Arab world and disseminating the upright Islamic teachings which promote the constructive dialogue among various religions and cultures.
The document aims also to address the challenges facing the Arab nation in fighting terrorism, particularly in the light of the continuation of the Israeli occupation’s exercise of terror and its denial of the Palestinian people's legitimate right to establish an independent state with Al Quds as its capital.
Heads and speakers of Arab parliaments held earlier a closed consultation meeting with the AL secretary general in presence of the IPU president ahead of the third Arab Parliaments' Speakers Conference to discuss the current Arab conditions and conflicts hitting some Arab countries in addition to the major file of issuing a document on fighting terrorism.
