Khurshid opens parliamentary course for Arab officials

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid Monday inaugurated a course on parliamentary processes and procedures to be attended by 14 officials from seven Arabic-speaking countries.

Officials from Algeria, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia will attend the course, officials said.

"The Arab Spring had ushered in a fresh wave of democracy in the countries of the Middle-East, which has necessitated the process of institution-building and manpower training so as to effectively run the representative bodies in those countries," said Khurshid.

He hoped the programme would help the participants to understand the intricacies of practices and procedures of the Indian parliament.

Under an initiative taken by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, the Special Training Programme is being organised by the Bureau for Parliamentary Studies and Training April 15 to 26.
