Security And Terrorism Expert Mansoor Ijaz To Speak Feb. 5

February 3, 2003-- Mansoor Ijaz, an internationally known national security and counter-terrorism expert involved in several key diplomatic efforts, will present two public talks at the University of Virginia on Wednesday, Feb. 5.

A 1983 U.Va. graduate, Ijaz will speak at 11 a.m. at the Miller Center of Public Affairs and at 7 p.m. in the Rotunda Dome Room.

As a private U.S. citizen, in 1997 he negotiated Sudan’s counter-terrorism offer to the Clinton administration and in 2000 wrote the outline for a cease-fire between Muslim separatists and Indian security forces in Kashmir. He also served as a source for the Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was later killed by terrorists in Pakistan. Ijaz’s commentaries appear regularly in the New York Times and Washington Post and on national television news programs.

Chairman of a New York investment firm focusing on U.S. national security technologies, Ijaz devotes much of his time to foreign affairs analysis and to promoting understanding of the Muslim world in the West.

Ijaz also will visit with U.Va. students in classes Wednesday and Thursday. To arrange an interview contact U.Va. News Services at (434) 924-6856 or 924-7116.
