In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious the Most Merciful
Brothers and sisters, distinguished members of the Shura Council
May Allah’s peace and mercy be upon you,
I am pleased on the occasion of the closing meeting of the current session of the Shura Council to present the highest words of
thanks and appreciation to His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir, may Allah (protect him) for his great support and ongoing patronage, which enabled the Council to achieve its mission and to play its role in the service of the citizens and in defending the causes of the country.
The current session witnessed constructive works, discussions, and recommendations by which the Council contributes along with the other government organs in the process of development and renaissance of this blessed country, under the wise and able guidance of His Highness the Emir. Through 34 plenary meetings during this session, the Council submitted to the esteemed government many recommendations pertaining to legislative instruments, or to important topics that touch the lives of the citizens and which were proposed, discussed, and recommended by the Council.
While carrying out its responsibilities and tasks the Council was keen to cooperate with the ministers and the officials in the various government agencies, and invited a number of them to its plenary meetings and to the meetings of its various committees. I am pleased to pay tribute here to the efforts of the esteemed Government for their sincere and constructive cooperation with the Council.
By the Grace of Allah, the Council has received more acceptance and respect abroad through its active participations with its counterpart parliaments in the sisterly and friendly countries. Those participations have provided an opportunity for the Council to present the just stances of the State of Qatar and its civilized reactions towards the unjust blockade imposed on it.
On this occasion I extend my thanks to you, my brothers and sisters, members of the Council, for the efforts you made, whether in plenary meetings of the Council or in the meetings of the specialized committees, as well as for the spirit of seriousness and responsibility you showed and for your hard work which was characterized by team spirit. You all towered to the level of the national and moral responsibility.
I also thank the General Secretariat and all the staff of the Council.
In conclusion, I wish you a joyful holiday.
