PRINCE HASSAN: "We come from a part of the world which veritably is a microcosm of science. It is a part of the world which has evolved in the 20th century, taking with us the difficulties and the hardships of the political role which has many dimensions relating to different areas of interest, with the difficult task of maintaining and evolving understanding of these hardships, as well as of the basic construction of a society which we feel should be well established if it is to face these challenges."
