Saudi Arabia has assumed the presidency of the IATA aviation security committee

Saudi Arabia's permanent representative at ICAO, Bader bin Saleh Alsagri, has been chosen as the next president of the UN organization's aviation security committee. The statement was made during the sixth session of the organization council's 229th session, which was held in Montreal, Canada, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA). 


The committee of the ICAO Council's most important task is, to submit recommendations to the council on policies, strategic directions, priorities, and planning activities related to aviation security and to consult the council on international standards and security recommendations. The committee will analyze new and emerging risks to international civil aviation and will take the necessary steps to protect civil aviation from illegal involvement. 


Saudi Arabia has become a more important regional and worldwide supporter of the air transport sector, reflecting the Kingdom's position in international civil aviation forums and regional organizations. Several committees of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization (ACAO), notably the aviation security committee, are chaired by Kingdom officials. 


According to SPA, the Kingdom continues to support civil aviation around the world by launching a number of programs and initiatives, as well as sending Saudi experts to work in specialized organizations and hosting the permanent headquarters of ICAO's Cooperative Aviation Security Program Middle East (CASP-MID) and the Regional Safety Oversight Organization for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA RSOO).
