A parliamentary delegation, led by UAE Federal National Council (FNC) Speaker Saqr Ghubash, arrived yesterday on an official visit to the kingdom at the invitation of Council of Representatives Speaker Fawzia bint Abdulla Zainal.

Upon arrival at the Bahrain International Airport, they were welcomed by Speaker Zainal, and Second Deputy Speaker and Head of the Convoy of Honour, MP Ali Ahmed Zayed.

Members of the Bahrain-UAE Fraternity Committee at the Representatives Council, MPs Ammar Qambar and Mohammed Al Abbasi, and Secretary-General of the Council of Representatives, Chancellor Rashid Mohammed Bu Najma, in addition to the UAE Embassy’s Minister Plenipotentiary, Ali Yousef Al Nuaimi, and Third Secretary, Ali Obaid Al Zaabi, also welcomed the UAE parliamentary delegation.

The visit reflects the keenness of the legislative branch, particularly the Representatives Council, to boost parliamentary diplomacy in order to discuss ways to enhance joint cooperation between the two brotherly countries, in light of their solid deep-rooted ties, strengthened thanks to the distinguished relations between His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, and His Highness President Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the UAE.

The UAE parliamentary delegation’s visit will feature meetings with senior state officials in the kingdom, in addition to talks on ways to bolster bilateral parliamentary cooperation, and activate the agreements signed between the two sides to institutionalise parliamentary cooperation and unify visions vis-a-vis various issues.
