Our policies call for resolving conflicts peacefully through mediation: Amir Dec 15, 2019 0 2367 12345 Jelili OpadijoDohaThe Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani opened Doha Forum 2019 under the theme “Reimagining Governance in a Multipolar World” on Saturday.In a speech, the Amir said, “The sources of defects that prompted many people to lose faith in the efficacy of the existing global systems and mechanisms, including double standards, must be addressed.” “Sincere efforts should also be intensified in propounding new visualisations for the next stage, especially after the consequences of abandoning the international legitimacy and law emerged in more than one place, including our region.” The Amir said the common international vision that appeared to be clear at the beginning of the new millennium has blurred, whether from the perspective of the international legitimacy, issues of poverty, environment and climate or from not holding war criminals accountable. “However, the problems and challenges have remained in place as they are and the environment and climate problems are exacerbating. There is close co-relation between poverty, wars and the aggravation of asylum and immigration issues.” “These problems cannot be solved without coordinated international efforts and shared visions, likewise the issues of violent extremism which is not restricted to a religion or a race, and which is indiscriminate in targeting the innocent, and making no distinction based on gender, racial or religious grounds.”The Amir said, “Our policies are based on respecting the international law and international legitimacy and contributing to solving conflicts peacefully through mediation and providing a space for dialogue. We have also established platforms such as the Doha Forum and the Doha Conference on Interfaith Dialogue, which we launched 16 years ago for building dialogue bridges.”The Amir said, “We announced on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session last September the allocation of $100 million to small island states to cope with climate change.”“Qatar has pledged to provide education to one million young girls in conflict areas by the year 2021. In addition, the Education Above All Foundation works alone to provide education to 10 million children in conflict areas around the world. ”Qatar Development Fund contributes around $600 million annually to relief, educational and health projects in 59 countries across different continents, the Amir added.
