Hon. Gildas Molgat (Deputy Speaker of the Senate):

Your Majesties, Mr. Speaker,

-Mr. Prime Minister, Hon. colleagues in the Senate and the House of Commons-

Distinguished guests:

On behalf of my colleagues in the Senate of Canada, I thank Your Majesty for the honour you have paid us in addressing this joint session of Parliament. This Chamber no doubt reminds you of the British parliamentary traditions with which you are so familiar.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Your Majesty and Her Majesty Queen Noor to this Chamber. It is entirely appropriate that you should be the first Arab Head of State to address this assembly.

We know that when you acceded to the Throne you decided to be a modem sovereign of your people. We knew that we would be moved by the words of a monarch who, during the 37 years of his reign, has played a critical role in the unfolding drama in the Middle East and in the search for a lasting and just peace. Canada too has been actively involved in the search for a solution which

Government Orders

would reconcile and do justice to the claims of the contending parties.

For two decades, Your Majesty, you and your government have succeeded in living peacefully with your neighbours, thus making Jordan a haven of stability and development in a region tom by strife. This has been achieved largely thanks to the courage, statesmanship and realism that Your Majesty has shown over the years.

Canadians in all walks of life have admired Your Majesty's willingness to take personal and political risks in the interests of peace. We have admired the reasoned, moderate tone with which you intervene on the international scene.

We are therefore extremely grateful to you and we thank you sincerely for sharing with us your preoccupations and your insights. I know your words have been eagerly listened to by all present.

On behalf of the Senate, I would thank you for visiting us. We wish Your Majesties happiness, peace and prosperity for your people and for the members of your family.
