The Shura Council held its weekly meeting on Monday under the chairmanship of HE the Speaker Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid al-Mahmoud. At the beginning of the meeting, the Council hailed the arrival of the first shipment of the Covid-19 vaccine in implementation of the directives of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to provide this vaccine to everyone according to Qatar's health standards.

The Council renewed its thanks and appreciation to the medical personnel in the health sector and to all the state's institutions and entities for the success achieved in containing the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Shura Council also hailed Qatar's victory in the bid to host the 2030 Asian Games, as this will enhance the pioneering role the country is playing in the sports arena, regionally and globally.

During the meeting, the Council reviewed the Cabinet's memo regarding the complementary recommendation of the Shura Council regarding the harm to the children of divorced and widowed Qatari women from fathers hailing from blockading nations. This included the letter of HE Minister of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs on the ministry's views in this regard.

It also referred to Cabinet's decision to refer the recommendation of the Shura Council that priority be given to granting permanent residency permit to the children of a Qatari woman married to non-Qatari to the Ministry of Interior. This is so that the ministry can take the necessary measures in this regard to overcome the difficulties facing the children of a Qatari mother.

The Shura Council then expressed thanks and appreciation to the esteemed government for its cooperation and for responding to its recommendations.
