Qatar participates in ministerial meeting of Least Developed Countries

The State of Qatar participated in the virtual ministerial meeting of the Least Developed Countries, during 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. The State of Qatar was represented at the meeting by Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, H E Sultan bin Saad Al Muraikhi. His Excellency said, in the State of Qatar’s speech, that the world is living in unprecedented conditions surrounded by many challenges to address the COVID-19 pandemic, whose negative repercussions affect all countries, and particularly affect the least developed countries, and threaten to undermine the achieved development gains.

 

His Excellency stressed that the State of Qatar is proud to host the 5th United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries, from January 23-27, 2022. His Excellency added that within the framework of the preparatory process for the conference, the State of Qatar is working closely with the presidency of the Least Developed Countries Group, the Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, and it will spare no effort to provide all requirements for the success of holding this conference.

His Excellency referred to the first preparatory working visit of the delegation of the Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries to the State of Qatar, which took place successfully in November 2019.

His Excellency stressed that the State of Qatar has never hesitated to play its pioneering and internationally acclaimed role as an active partner in the international community. H E Minister of State for Foreign Affairs also referred to the announcement made by Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, during the Climate Action Summit held last September, regarding Qatar’s contribution of $100m to support the least developed countries and small island developing states, to deal with climate change.

His Excellency added that Qatar Fund For Development (QFFD) is also currently developing a mechanism to respond to the challenges related to climate change through a 10-year strategy aimed at supporting these countries in achieving the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement and their efforts in the field of sustainable development.
