Qatar’s Minister of State for Interior Affairs HE Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Faisal Al-Thani met with President of Naif Arab University for Security Sciences (NAUSS) Dr. Abdulmajeed Abdullah Albanyan on the sidelines of the workshop on enhancing the security sense for media spokesperson that kicked off in Doha on Tuesday.
During the meeting, they discussed several topics of common interest, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported.
Naif Arab University for Security Sciences (NAUSS) is an Arab organization with a legal personality and enjoys diplomatic status. It is the academic body of the Arab Interior Ministers Council.
NAUSS offers programs for graduate studies, research, and training in security fields and relevant areas. The university campus is in Riyadh, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The idea of establishing the University came to realization with the holding of the first conference of Arab Police and Security Leaders in Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates in 1972. Then, the second conference of the Arab Interior Ministers Council, which was held in Baghdad on October 4, 1978, issued a decision to establish the Arab Institute for Training to undertake studies and research on societal defense against crime, in addition to training. Later, the name of the institute was changed to the Arab Center for Social Defense Studies in 1979. In the third conference of the Arab Interior Ministers, which was held in Taif in 1980, a decision was then issued to change the name to the Arab Center for Security Studies and Training.
