Princess Basma meets bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States

From Jordan-

Her Royal Highness Princess Basma Bint Talal met on Tuesday with the Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States, Katharine Jefferts Schori, who is currently visiting the Kingdom.

The two sides discussed the current situation in the Middle East and voiced hope that peace and stability will prevail in the region.

Princess Basma welcomed the visit, which coincides with the International Women's Day, as Bishop Katherine is the first woman to hold this religious position, a fact that represents a distinguished accomplishment for women at the international level.

Her Highness praised the services provided by the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center for Disabled Children to the followers of the three monotheistic religions.

The Executive Director of the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development, Farah Daghistani, who attended the meeting, reviewed the programs of the fund that aim to achieve sustainable development of local communities.
