Arab States Urged to Embrace Reform

Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state, has urged Arab leaders to embrace the “spirit of reform” that has swept the region and move swiftly to respond to the growing demands of their citizens.
“The long Arab winter has begun to thaw,” said Clinton on Tuesday, at the opening day of the US-Islamic World Forum being held in Washington, Al-Jazeera reported.
She praised Arab youth for rising up against “false narratives” that she said had choked political and economic reform for generations.
“All the signs of progress we have seen in recent months will only be meaningful if more leaders in more places move faster and further to embrace this spirit of reform,” she said.
Before an audience that included representatives of more than 30 Muslim nations, the top US diplomat said that “for the first time in decades there is a real opportunity for change” following the historic unrest in the region.
Arab youth, she added, will no longer “accept the status quo” and “know a better life is within reach--and they are willing to reach for it”.
Officials from Muslim majority nations including Jordan, Turkey, Indonesia, Pakistan and Afghanistan attended the annual meeting, which aims to build greater understanding between the United States and Muslim countries.
Earlier on Tuesday, while opening the forum, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), called for the United States to be more active in solving conflicts in the Muslim world.
Ihsanoglu called for a resumption of the Middle East peace process so that it can be the cornerstone of US-Muslim world relations.
He said that it was “high time” for talks to resume to find a two-state solution between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
