US official praises culture of tolerance in the UAE

posted on 18/05/2008: 737 views



A visiting U.S. official yesterday called on the Middle East countries to benefit from the UAE's example of tolerance.

Goli Ameri Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs said in an interview with "Al Ittihad" newspaper that she was impressed with the advancement of UAE's higher education institutions, including Zayed University and the Higher Colleges of Technology. She also expressed admiration for the great role played the Zayed House for Islamic Culture in preparing and training scholars and Imams in the United States and other Western countries. Ameri admitted that numbers of Emarati students in the United States dropped sharply due to strict visa rules following September 11 attacks. She revealed that around 800 Emarati students are currently enrolled in U.S. universities.

"We are trying hard to increase the numbers of Emarati students coming to the United States for college and post-graduate studies. Nevertheless, I can say the situation is much better now," Ameri said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
