Speaker of the Arab Parliament (AP) Adel Al Assomi discussed with Tanzila Narbaeva, Speaker of the Senate of Uzbekistan, the procedures for organizing the First Parliamentary Summit of Arab and Muslim Women Parliamentarians in Tashkent.

The summit aims to support the empowerment of women MPs in the Arab and Islamic worlds in order to promote communication with influential Arab and Muslim women MPs in non-Arab and non-Islamic countries.

It also seeks to explore ways to make greater use of them in supporting Arab and Islamic issues where they are residing.

Al Assomi and Narbaeva discussed the summit on the sidelines of their participation in the First Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement Parliamentary Network, hosted by Azerbaijan from 30 June to 1 July 2022, which was inaugurated by the Head of State.

During the meeting, Al Assomi emphasized the AP's keenness to strengthen parliamentary relations with Uzbekistan at the parliamentary level and with the Islamic world in general, to serve Arab and Islamic issues in various regional and international fora.

In this context, the two sides agreed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the coming period, thereby contributing to the institutionalization of relations between the two sides, and regulating their areas of cooperation and coordination with respect to issues of mutual concern.

On her side, Narbaeva stressed her keenness to enhance relations with the AP and joint coordination on issues of common interest through the MoU to be signed.
