Posted November 29, 2006; 06:10 p.m.
Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United
States, will deliver a policy address at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7, in
Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
The prince was appointed U.S. ambassador in July 2005 after more than two years as ambassador to the United Kingdom and Ireland. As ambassador to Washington, he has urged the Bush administration to increase its Middle East diplomacy and peacemaking efforts.
Prince Turki headed Saudi Arabia's intelligence service for 24 years before moving into his role as a diplomat. He replaced former U.S. ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who resigned after 22 years as the kingdom's Washington envoy.
The event is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
