King, Queen to receive Path to Peace Award in New York
Their Majesties King Abdullah and Queen Rania Al Abdullah will receive the Path to Peace Award in New York on Monday evening, during His Majesty’s working visit to the United States.
The award, presented by the Path to Peace Foundation affiliated with the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations, comes in appreciation of Their Majesties’ role in promoting interfaith harmony and dialogue, as well as bolstering prospects for peace, and Jordan’s humanitarian efforts to host refugees.
Also in New York, King Abdullah is scheduled to meet with the Jordanian American Physicians executive board and a number of distinguished Jordanian doctors in the United States, out of His Majesty’s keenness to reach out to Jordanian expatriates and hear about their achievements and suggestions.
The King will also meet with a number of Christian leaders in the United States to reaffirm the importance of safeguarding the Christian presence in the Middle East and protecting Arab Christians’ rights in the holy land.
From New York, His Majesty heads to Washington to continue the working visit, which started on Friday.
