The meeting of the Supervising Committee of the Agreement Regulating Passenger Transport in the Arab League kicks off

A short while ago, the first meeting of the technical committee supervising the implementation of the Arab agreement to regulate the transport of passengers on roads between Arab countries and others was launched, at the headquarters of the General Secretariat of the League of Arab States.

This comes from a desire to strengthen and develop social and economic ties.


In accordance with Article 27 of the said agreement, this committee, which is composed of representatives of the contracting parties, meets, who are eight Arab countries: the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, the State of Palestine, Qatar, Libya and Yemen, in addition to Syria, whose membership is suspended in present time.


The committee takes binding decisions in accordance with the provisions of the internal system of the Council of Arab Ministers of Transport regarding the problems arising from the interpretation and application of this agreement, by a two-thirds majority of the votes.
