Qatar is proud to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup for the first time in the Middle East and the Arab world and considers the World Cup as an opportunity for Qatar and the region to stimulate social development and build a better future for next generations, Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations Ambassador HE Sheikha Alya Ahmed bin Saif Al Thani has said.
“Now, it is more important than ever to support sports and physical activities. Sport should be included in the recovery plans after the COVID-19 pandemic within the national strategies for sustainable development, because it is an essential factor in mitigating the impact of the pandemic on health and people and has an important impact in the restoration of normal life activities,” Sheikha Alya said during a high-level meeting on the prevention of violent extremism through sports.
The event was organised by the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) in partnership with the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), and the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS).
