Jordan brings together 11 countries for new forum

NEW YORK (AFP) - Jordan's King Abdullah II is to unveil a new forum for economic and political cooperation among 11 mostly lower and middle income countries on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

The so-called Group of Eleven (G11) will include Croatia, Ecuador, Georgia, Honduras, Indonesia, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan, Paraguay, Sri Lanka and Tunisia. Yahoo News

Musharraf was speaking at a meeting of 11 countries known as Lower-Middle Income Countries at which Jordan's King Abdullah II officially launched an initiative to create a forum for cooperation and knowledge-sharing to promote their shared interests.

Thanks for the links to Rania and Abdullah's activities whilst in the States.

Rania looks great as always but it's what comes out of her mouth that's most important. I was looking at the message board of GMA and someone had posted that it was a pity more people couldn't listen to what Rania had to say about the misunderstandings that can occur when people from different cultures in this world we have now of globalisation just don't seem to be able to understand each other and how Muslims are perceived in the world.

She really seems to have come into her own as she matures and gains more confidence about public speaking, I think she creates generally a good impression - well she does to me anyway and I'm a non muslim.

And yes, I noticed that she seems to be very much dressed in brown at the moment, her outfit on the first day was all brown and then in Harlem it was brown and now on GMA (pity there is no video for her speaking only the transcript - was there one?).

Although I think brown is usually popular in autumn/winter anyway.

I think Rania needs to cut her hair. It's really getting too long and starting to look tacky and unmanagable. I doesn't look elegent anymore.

In preparation for the opening of a children's museum in Jordan, Her Majesty Queen Rania visits the Museum of Natural History in New York City, and met with Museum educators (here with Museum President Ellen Futter) and New York City high school students. In the Discovery Room, Queen Rania presents a doll from Her Majesty's personal collection to be added to the Dolls exhibit there.

Newscom.com has photos of her visiting the Museum of Natural History. Her entire wardrobe for this trip appears to be new, and she appears to be wearing, on average, two outfits a day.

Getty has photos of the king at the Clinton Global Initiative.

It is getting a bit long, but I wouldn't say it's getting tacky or unmanagable. It looked lovely during her natural history museum trip.

Thanks for the correction. Diane Sawyer interviewed Queen Rania on Good Morning America. Maybe we can all send ABC.com an e-mail on the correct pronunciation!

King’s appearance at the Clinton Global Initiative

Rania’s visits to institutions in New York. I suspected they would group them together like this at the end of her trip. They’ve done this before on other trips abroad. I'm not sure if it's Petra that does this or her office.

East Harlem (Wednesday)

My pleasure Kerry, it can get better though, last year I attended a charity gala at the Grovesnar House Hotel in London and queen Raniya was patron of the foundation, when she arrived the announcer went on to say " Ladies and gentlemen, Her Majesty Queen Rona" it was so embarrasing yet hilarious at the same time

She's dressed all in brown again I see!

I love that second pic down in Harlem - she has one killer smile - just amazing!

Looks lovely and elegant as ever. Often wearing the same colour can be a bit much on some people, but she gets it just right.

Thanks for the links by the way everyone.

On the newscom site you have to register to see the full size pics, just to answer a previous posters query.

As for her hair....yes it is getting rather long but I still think it looks lovely, but it's very time keeping to look after and it can look messy in certain conditions - I know about it because I used to have long hair just like hers.

I like the fact that Rania goes to places like museums and so on, I wonder if she personally chooses these places or are they picked for her?

Any idea?

Yes she goes to a lot of museums, in France, Greece, Austria, the US, as well as Jordan etc.
This recent visit to the Natural History Museum was in conjunction with the opening of a childrens' museum in Jordan. Sometimes the visit is relevant in terms of other projects Rania's involved in and other times its just out of personal interest.

Thank you Humera.

I love visiting museums, just so interesting.

I think Rania probably likes them as well but also they fit into her projects at the same time in some cases.

This has a video clip of her speech at the UNICEF event on Monday.
http://www.maximsnews.com/1006mnunseptember22aaa.htm

Another way to get to the video is through the UNICEF website. Just go down to the bottom of the page to her picture. Underneath is the link. There's also a general news piece on the event at the top of the page, which includes her.
