The Director of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Center was surprised to find his name on the agenda of the symposium without prior approval or approval of the Center.

Mr. Khan expressed his deep dissatisfaction with the Qatari delegation for putting his name and the name of the center on the agenda, stressing that he would not participate in the effectiveness of the symposium.
