Five Middle East States to share aviation security info

Posted 7 December 2018 · Add Comment

Following their presentation of a working paper entitled 'Sharing of Aviation Security Information Between States' at the Second High-level Conference on Aviation Security (HLCAS/2-WP/2), Egypt, Jordan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and United Arab Emirates have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) to share sensitive aviation security material.

The signing of the LoL is a precursor to the subsequent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the initiative.

The working paper that inspired the LoI discusses the importance of the strengthening cooperation between States regarding the sharing of relevant information in order to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of risk-based aviation security measures. It is closely aligned with one of the key objectives of HLCAS/2, namely to “encourage States to enter into collaborative arrangements for sharing of security information in order to enhance effectiveness of aviation security measures at the national, regional and global levels within the emerging threat environment”.
