The aim is to achieve the aspirations of their governments and peoples for stability, prosperity, and sustainable growth.

Furthermore, Ghobash highlighted the importance of strengthening the parliamentary relations among all sides, calling for the establishment of mechanisms to enhance their parliamentary cooperation, exchange parliamentary information and expertise, and unify views and stances at various international parliamentary forums, such as the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino).

Additionally, he stressed the close parliamentary cooperation between the FNC and the Latin American and Caribbean Parliament, where the council has observer status.

The cooperation agreement between the FNC and the Latin American and Caribbean Group (GRULAC) within the IPU, was signed in October 2014, he noted.

It is the first of its kind signed by an Arab country with GRULAC, reflecting the significant role it plays in the IPU and other parliamentary forums.

This agreement embodies the growing interests of the UAE and the group’s countries, grounded in shared principles and foundations for future collaboration, he said.
