Mohammad Aleissa, Saudi Arabian Cultural Attaché to the United States, will give the keynote address on behalf of Adel Al-Jubeir, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States of America, at 1 p.m. Oct. 24, during the Saudi-U.S. Relationship Conference at UNI. The ambassador will not be able to attend the conference as originally planned. According to Nail Al-Jubeir, spokesman for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, the ambassador had to travel to Saudi Arabia on official business, and even though he was hoping to return to the United States in time for the conference, he is unable to do so.

All other conference events will continue as scheduled. Each session in the Maucker Union Old Central Ballroom will be broadcast live on the Saudi-U.S. Relationship Conference Web site, from links on the Schedule page.

The United State's relationship with Saudi Arabia has weathered many storms, including numerous regional and global conflicts and crises. Today, this relationship spans the fields of politics, economics, education, technology and other areas of human endeavor. As the relationship between the two nations has matured, it has reflected the ideals of independence, justice and peace, which are the cornerstones of the United Nations Charter.


The UNI Saudi Student Club will host Adel Al-Jubeir, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States. The ambassador will give the conference keynote address.


This conference is an opportunity to exchange information; gain understanding of Saudi Arabian economics, politics and culture; and learn more about the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the U.S.
