Teaneck, NJ (October 21, 2004)—Kuwait’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Nabeela Abdulla Al-Mulla, will speak on “The Role of Women in Islam” at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus, Teaneck, NJ, on Wednesday, November 17, 2004.

Before Ambassador Al-Mulla was appointed to her current post, she served as Ambassador to Austria and to Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia on a non-residency basis. She had previously held the posts of Ambassador to Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia, Mauritius and Botswana.

Her Excellency Al-Mulla was also her country’s Resident Representative to the United Nations Office at Vienna, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CNTBTO), and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) where she served as Governor and then as Chairman of the Board of Governors.

She represented Kuwait at the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) extraordinary ministerial meetings, in the multilateral talks on arms control and regional security in the Middle East, and was a participant in meetings on Kuwaiti prisoners of war and detainees.

After earning her undergraduate degree in political studies in 1968, Ambassador Al-Mulla joined the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1972, she received her Master of Arts in International Relations from the American University of Beirut.
