HE Speaker of the Advisory Council Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud expressed his happiness over the confidence of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in choosing the State of Qatar for its 140th meeting in April next year in Doha.

In an exclusive statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA), His Excellency said that Qatar's hosting of the IPU meetings, which will bring together more than 180 parliaments, would not have taken place without the directives and support of HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.

He pointed out that the upcoming 140th IPU session would be a special and successful one, given the great experience of the State of Qatar in hosting various regional and international conferences and meetings.

His Excellency stressed that the confidence of the international parliamentarians in Qatar's hosting of the IPU meetings confirms the prominent position that the State of Qatar occupies at the local and international levels, as it has been and continues to be a fundamental supporter of all that could achieve international peace and security in the region and the world.
