Arab Foundation for Democracy

By SOP newswire

The United States applauds the creation of the Arab Foundation for Democracy, established in Doha, Qatar, on May 29, 2007 by Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint  Nasser al-Missned, Consort of the Emir.  With a focus and a mandate on promoting democracy and equal opportunity throughout the Middle East and North Africa, this Foundation responds to an important demand for democratic reform within the Arab world. 

The United States strongly supports reformers who are working to build a more democratic and prosperous region.  The establishment of the Foundation exemplifies the expanding commitment to democracy in the Middle East and North Africa.
