 Saqr Ghobash, Speaker of the Federal National Council (FNC), and Lindiwe Dlamini, President of Eswatini Senate have discussed ways to enhance bilateral cooperation in various vital sectors. In a phone call, the two officials talked about the common vision that looks forward to future prospects to serve the interests of the two friendly countries and peoples.

They suggested that the bilateral cooperation should be enhanced with effective communication and coordination on a variety of topics of common interest. The officials emphasised the importance of the exchange of visits and experiences, and improving coordination and consultations between two parliaments, especially on parliamentary participation, which will strengthen the bilateral cooperation between the two countries.
