Princess Aisha received the award at a ceremony attended by HRH Princess Muna Al Hussein, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence for International Security Affairs Joseph McMillan and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Academic Programs Alina Romanowski and a number of Arab ambassadors.
Her Highness delivered a speech during the ceremony thanked the Center this high honour and she said that the Near East South Asia Centre for Strategic Studies has built bridges of cooperation, and encouraged dialogue and mutual understanding, at a time when crises and unrepresentative radical groups have been working to destroy the culture of tolerance and acceptance among nations and civilisations.
The award comes in recognition of the action of the Princess who was one of the early participants and supporters of the Center’s programs. Also Princess Aisha was the first female from the Middle East to graduate Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
The Near East South Asia (NESA) Center for Strategic Studies is the pre-eminent U.S. Government institution for building relationships and understanding in the NESA region.Filed under Jordan
