I have arrived back in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and have read the article in The Berkeley Beacon. I want to congratulate Audrey Resutek for a great article.

Following up on the leadership of Dr. Payne in establishing these dialogues, and my conversations with him and others about bridging the gap between both cultures, I believe this kind of cooperation is a great example of how we can strengthen the academic and cultural relationships of the U.S and Saudi Arabia.

I really encourage more of this kind of media coverage in both countries regarding the grass roots efforts and the strong academic ties we have as colleagues.

I just have one comment on my bio in that article. I am a consultant in the Ministry of Information and Media, not the Shoura Council although we have eight women consultants in the Shoura.

Thanks again for that interesting article!
