MOU Signing With League of Arab States Secretary General Elaraby

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: New York City, NY

Secretary Clinton: Our hope is not only to strengthen ties between our institutions -- the Government of the United States and the Arab League -- but between our people, the people of the Arab world and the American people. Recent events remind us we have a great deal of work to do, and we look to partners in regional organizations to help us build mutual understanding and work to uphold and defend principles such as nonviolence and tolerance while we work in very constructive and practical ways to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.

Secretary General Elaraby: So I think it was said that you are indispensible. But in the world today -- and we continue -- we think that this Memorandum of Understanding will open new avenues for further cooperation and understanding. And you also -- as you rightly pointed out, what is needed is not to start by agreement, agreeing on something, but to, in all honesty, exchange views and see how we can reach a common understanding of certain matters. And I think this is a very good beginning.
