Dr. Amal Abdullah Al Qubaisi, Speaker of the Federal National Council (FNC), has called for a joint FNC-government committee to address the challenges of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), a law recently passed by the US Congress.

'The committee will study challenges and negative repercussions of the Act,' said Dr. Al Qubaisi in her opening address at the 2nd ordinary session of the 16th Legislative chapter of the FNC on Sunday.

'The UAE is in a good position to develop new models of cooperation and integration to address rapid transformations around us,' she added.

'At the time when some are looking for security in walled communities, the UAE is building a bridge of tolerance to reach out to the world away from the hatred which is fuelling conflicts around us. While some countries are worried about an economic crash, the UAE is investing in happiness and encouraging its people to build a brighter future,' said Dr. Al Qubaisi, as she spoke about the mounting challenges and crises the world is facing.

'The late founding father, Sheikh Zayed, saw a state that inspired the world, and the leadership and people of the UAE are today anticipating opportunities emerging out of present challenges,' she added.

Dr. Al Qubaisi said the house is ready to collaborate closely with the government to address transformations and challenges facing our communities and states.

The house then approved its strategy (2016 - 2019), which defines initiatives, plans and guidelines that, according to Al Qubaisi, would strengthen cooperation and coordination with the government to deliver state policies and national visions.

'The plan seeks to solidify societal solidarity through greater participation of citizens in the work of the FNC, so as to deliberate on social issues and improve its legislative and supervisory role,' she said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
