GCC back Qatar’s bid to host FIFA World Cup 2022

(Doha) – The GCC Information Ministers have reiterated their firm position to deal with the calls that question the eligibility of the State of Qatar to organise the FIFA World Cup 2022.
They stressed full solidarity with the State of Qatar, urging the media in the GCC states to continue countering these campaigns whether at home or abroad, given the fact that the record to host the World Cup 2022 is an achievement to the entire the GCC bloc.
The ministers added in the recommendations of the 23rd sessions, being held in Doha that the foremost duty of the media in the GCC member states is to highlight the unprecedented cultural and economic achievements and their positive impact on the youth in the GCC states.
They resolved that the State of Qatar in coordination with the General Secretariat will develop media strategy to counter such campaigns and reflect the international dimension in the media discourse to demonstrate the eligibility of the GCC countries represented by the State of Qatar to organise this important international event.
The ministers approved the Secretariat mechanism to implement a number of recommendations included in the media strategy calendar and submit them to the Ministerial Council for adoption, taking into account the number of points, including coordination between the Secretariat and the media institutions.
They also agreed on a discourse on the counter-terrorism, which requires a double effort from all media institutions in the GCC states in accordance with mechanisms in each state.
