The speech delivered by the Amir His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) reflects Qatar’s leadership role in multiple areas in both peace and troubled times in international relations, Ambassador of Bangladesh to Qatar HE Md. Jashim Uddin has said.
“HH the Amir’s speech has been anchored in Qatar’s firm belief in the principles of the UN Charter, respect for the sovereignty of States and Qatar’s time-tested and effective role in mediation diplomacy. The speech rightly highlighted the Palestinian cause as we in Bangladesh also continue to call for the rights of our Palestinian brothers and sisters and for action to establish those rights,” the envoy said.
“The emphasis, with a sense of concern, on the ongoing global conflicts in different parts of the world is a shared concern. The integral nature of the contemporary world makes these conflicts truly global, disrupting supply chains, affecting energy and food prices among others.”
He added, “We also note in agreement to his genuine realisation that the approaches and methods haven’t evolved to cope with the transformative changes the world has been witnessing. Yet, Qatar’s role in the face of what he called “a bleak image of the future of humanity” is sincere and pragmatic. Qatar’s leading role in mitigating energy shortage crisis by expanding the North Gas field is laudable and HH the Amir’s vision in this regard is timely and visionary.”
The ambassador called on international community to play its role. He said, “Countries, irrespective of their sizes, have a role to play and HH the Amir’s philosophy gives much hope for optimism to them. As Qatar inches towards the kickoff of the FIFA World Cup, we have reasons to believe in a better world that can be built through ‘real resolve, determination, a lot of planning and hard work’ as Qatar did to prepare for this sports event and for other extraordinary initiative in education, health and diplomacy. I hope Qatar’s relentless and exemplary efforts under the leadership of HH the Amir and efforts by others around the world will help tilt the future of humanity towards a better and livable world for us and for the generations to come.”
