Interpol has more members than the United Nations, and the organization expects to receive more countries, said Interpol President Ahmed Nasser al-Raisi.

-The country we receive is Palau. We hope that more countries will join in the future. We are the largest organization. We will have 196 members, which is more than the UN, Al Raisi said on the eve of the 91st Interpol General Assembly.

According to him, Interpol is constantly accepting new members.

- It is very important for us not to leave criminals a place to hide, explained the President of Interpol.

Interpol currently has 195 member states, while the United Nations has 193 member states.

Al Raisi took over as president of Interpol in November 2021.

From today until December 1, the 91st General Assembly of Interpol will be held in Vienna, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the organization in the capital of Austria.
