Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani chaired the Cabinet’s regular meeting recently at the Amiri Diwan. The Cabinet hailed the participation of Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in the COP26 Climate Summit being held in Glasgow. It also commended the intensive meetings held by HH the Amir with heads of brotherly and friendly countries, and heads of delegations participating in the conference. The Cabinet affirmed the launch of the National Environment and Climate Change Strategy by the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, which coincided with the convening of COP26, and embodies Qatar’s interest in environmental and climate change issues.

It noted that the creation of the Ministry of Environment and Change Climate reflects the country’s keenness to support international efforts and adopt joint action to protect people from the harmful effects of climate change.
The Cabinet was also briefed by the Minister of Public Health on the latest developments to limit the COVID-19 spread. The Cabinet affirmed the continuation of work with the precautionary measures that have been taken to combat the pandemic. From its agenda, the Cabinet approved a draft decree for the accession of Qatar to the Kimberley Process regarding the issuance of rough diamond certificates. It also approved a draft law on controlling the import, export, and transit of rough diamonds. The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme is the process established in 2003 to prevent “conflict diamonds” from entering the mainstream rough diamond market.

The Cabinet also approved a draft decision of the Minister of Transport regarding the conditions and controls for granting a marine driving license and cases of its withdrawal. It has decided to take necessary measures to ratify an agreement between Qatar and the United Nations on hosting the fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC5) and approved a draft executive programme of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) for cooperation in the field of standardization between the Qatar General Authority for Standardization (QS) and the Turkish Standards Institution (TSE).

The Cabinet also gave its nod to Qatar Tourism’s participation in the International Tourism Trade Fair, to be held in Madrid from January 19 to 23, 2022. It also reviewed the results of three meetings held in September — the second session of the Qatari-Ukrainian joint committee for economic, commercial, and technical cooperation, held in Ukraine; the 31st meeting of the Council of Arab Ministers of Justice, held remotely, and the 19th meeting of the committee of ministers concerned with housing affairs in GCC, held via videoconferencing.
