Director-General of Public Security, Staff Major General H E Saad bin Jassim Al Khulaifi said that holding the First Major Event Safety and Security Conference in Doha reflects that the State of Qatar has been working hard to prepare for the organisation of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The huge global participation in the conference affirms the international acceptance and satisfaction of Qatar’s hosting for this important event and the confidence in its ability to host and organise the world’s largest tournaments, Al Khulaifi said in a statement while he was touring the exhibition accompanying the conference.

During the tour, Al Khulaifi listened to an explanation by the officials of the pavilions and the participating bodies about the exhibits displayed, including those of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, which included models of the Qatari stadiums that will host the 2022 World Cup games.

Al Khulaifi also said that he had met with many participating delegations, and had noted the acceptance and realisation that the State of Qatar is working seriously to organise a unique world tournament in 2022, adding that the State is working at all levels in this regard, both in terms of projects related to the World Cup or in terms of security. He underlined that all security services are fully prepared to secure the world championship.
