Legal Committee inaugurated by Qatar


New York, 6 October 2021 (TDI): Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN), Sheikha Alya Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani opened the general debate of the Legal Committee.

Last June, the Qatari representative was elected to chair the 76th session of the Legal Committee. In front of this responsibility, Sheikha Alya expressed Qatar’s commitment to international law. As well, reaffirmed the State’s belief in the values of the UN Charter, as a legal basis to other organizations.

Her Excellency showed Qatar’s disposition to work alongside the Member States. On behalf of cooperation and coordination, the Sixth Committee works under the supervision of the General Assembly. It represents great importance to the international community.  

With terrorist attacks becoming prominent in recent decades, the 76th session began discussing the item “Measures to Eliminate International Terrorism”. This topic, also discussed by the First Committee on the UNGA, is vital to preserving international security.

Likewise, the Committee addresses measures to preserve the rule of law, and reports of the UN International Law Commission in order to draft international treaties.

The UN works in measures to build states’ capacity to prevent and combat terrorism and to strengthen the role of the UN system in that regard. 

The Committee will continue its work until the end of next November.
