UAE creates the Islamic Parliament Project

The United Arab Emirates’ Federal National Council recently hosted a conference in its efforts to help launch the Islamic Parliament Project, which aims to increase cooperation and integration with other Muslim countries. A recent gathering in Dubai focused on creating a proclamation for the project, which began in January at a meeting in Indonesia of the executive committee of the Parliamentary Union of Islamic Countries in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The UAE, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Algeria, Indonesia, Senegal, Turkey and Cameroon are participating in the project, which is an effort to address challenges of development and stability in the Muslim world. “The mega scheme comprises a five-part work plan from 2012 to 2017,” said FNC Speaker Mohammed Ahmed Al Murr. “A special code for social solidarity among Islamic countries against natural disasters and poverty shall be prepared as well.”
