Condemning the recent terrorist attack in the UAE, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Tuesday addressed the country’s Federal National Council (FNC) and said all nations should unite to fight the challenges of terrorism for global security and sustainable development.

Underlining that India and UAE have a long history of friendship and partnership, he said the similarity of views of the two countries on bilateral and multilateral issues has deepened this relationship. Addressing the extraordinary session of the council during the 6th plenary session of the FNC, Birla said, “I strongly and unequivocally condemn the recent terrorist attack in the UAE. The shared concern of UAE and India on terrorism is reshaping our cooperation in the current regional and global scenario.”

Emphasising the need for unity among nations in the fight against terrorism, Birla said that for global security, stability and sustainable development, “it is necessary that all the nations of the world come together to fight the challenges of terrorism and violent extremism”.

The Lok Sabha Secretariat quoted Birla in an official statement as saying economic cooperation between the two countries can become an effective vehicle for regional and global prosperity. He said the common interests of India and UAE need to be further strengthened on the pillars of 3Es — energy, economy and emigrant.

Appealing to investors from UAE to invest in India, Birla said the country is today the world’s leading investment destination. UAE companies can take advantage of the new opportunities arising in the fields of digital economy, human resources and smart urbanisation in India, he said. Birla is the first speaker of the Lok Sabha who addressed members of Federal National Council (Parliament) of United Arab Emirates.
