Eternal Iraq – People and Places
Speaker: Sir Terence Clark KBE CMG CVO
(British Ambassador to Iraq 1985 – 1989)
Sir Terence, with his insight and knowledge of the Arab world, will speak with colourful illustrations about his experiences in Iraq in the period 1985-90 during the Iran-Iraq War and would aim to demonstrate that despite all the turmoil of recent decades there still exists what he calls “the eternal Iraq”, based on Ancient Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilisation.
Being a lover of the desert-bred Saluki dog which he refers to as “Companion of Kings”. Sir Terence will have
copies of his book The Salukis in My Life available for sale after his talk.
Enjoy a drink with your friends and listen to why a well-travelled Arabist and a Brit calls Iraq “Eternal”?
How does an ex-British Ambassador see Iraq, its past and its future?
Might we hear of an account or two of meetings between the British Ambassador and top-level Iraqi officials of the time??
