While participating in the 147th session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace has entered into two significant memorandums of cooperation and joint action with the parliaments of the Republic of Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau.
His Excellency Ahmed bin Mohamed Al Jarwan, President of the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace signed a memorandum of understanding and collaborative efforts with the Parliament of the Republic of Cape Verde. This event took place during the delegation’s participation in the 147th session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) held in Luanda, the capital of the Republic of Angola. The signing occurred in the presence of the Cape Verdean ambassador to Angola. The agreement is designed to facilitate and formalize cooperation between the Council and the Parliament of the Republic of Cape Verde, with a specific focus on strengthening collaboration in the realms of tolerance and peace at the parliamentary level. The agreement also encompasses the appointment of a member from the Cape Verdean Parliament to the International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace.
In a similar context, Al Jarwan signed another memorandum of understanding and collaborative work with the Parliament of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, also in Luanda, Angola, during the participation of the Council’s delegation, led by Al Jarwan, in the ongoing session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU). This agreement aims to formalize cooperation and collaborative efforts in the fields of tolerance and peace. It includes the inclusion of a representative from the Parliament of Guinea-Bissau in the International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace, as well as a partnership for organizing initiatives and conferences to support peace and tolerance across various sectors.
