Clinton and Queen Rania of Jordan at charity dinner

posted on 24/01/2002: 2412 views


Former US President Bill Clinton visited Dubai on 17 January for the first time and spoke at a charity dinner organised by the Science, Technology and Arts Royal Summit (STARS) 2002 to raise money for underprivileged children. The event was also attended by General Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Defence Minister and Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan.



Clinton thanked the UAE for its support in the global fight against organised terrorism and reiterated calls for an end to the escalation of violence in Palestine. Clinton's speech at the dinner covered a range of global and social issues. He stressed that 'digital, political, economic and religious divides have to be bridged.'



Clinton said that some of his vision for a 'shared future' included another debt relief programme for poor countries, support for micro-lending, more concerted effort in the global fight against AIDS and the opening of the rich countries' markets to products made in the Third World. Clinton also said that 'America was not always right - or is not the sole bearer of truth - when it comes to burning global issues. Technology and money can never replace whatever truth is in the heart. Life is a journey that allows us to learn from everyone else.' http://www.stars-arabia.com http://www.sheikhmohammed.co.ae
