The 19th edition of the Doha Forum 2019 concluded on Sunday with a call to apply innovative solutions to overcome challenges facing the world.
Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al Thani attended the conclusion of 19th Doha Forum, which was held under the title Governance in a Multipolar World, on Sunday.
The two-day forum was attended by nearly 3,000 decision makers, policy experts and thought leaders, and
included more than 250 speakers.
In a speech, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran Javad Zarif stressed the importance of Doha Forum in providing a unique opportunity to reflect on ways to get “us out of the impasse in the region”.
He spoke of what he called the “perceptual turmoil” that deludes a person to benefit at the expense of his neighbour.
The Iranian FM stressed the importance of dialogue, respect for the sovereignty of states, non-interference in their internal affairs, rejection of force and methods of repression, and agreement on work teams to find solutions and establish cooperation and draw a road map for the future with the establishment of areas free of weapons of destruction, confidence-building between countries, water management, nuclear safety and freedom of maritime navigation.
He said the world has the opportunity to change course once and for all to improve people’s lives and enhance future generations.
The Doha Forum then celebrated the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations by holding a session addressed by President of the United Nations General Assembly Tijjani Muhammad-Bande and former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and a number of UN officials and organisations of public benefit.
Speakers pointed out that the United Nations, despite its crises and criticism, is a symbol of pluralism and is the basis on which the world rests on many issues that threaten humanity.
The speakers called for the importance of involving youth and women in achieving development goals and promoting pluralism and social inclusion through cooperation with civil society organisations and the private sector to put an end to what drives people to migrate and be displaced.
In a speech, President of El Salvador Najib Bokili said, “The civilisation we are living in has fulfilled three basic criteria that allow humankind to fix all fundamental problems”
He said the first criterion is globalisation, the second is interconnectedness through the internet and third criterion is production.PM attends Doha Forum’s closing ceremony
