On the second night of the 2012 U.S.-Islamic World Forum, convened by the Brookings Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World in partnership with the State of Qatar, Denis McDonough, U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor and Assistant to the President, gave a keynote speech on U.S. foreign policy as it relates to the forum. McDonough commended the leadership of Qatar on their leadership on wide ranging issues from Syria to food security and climate. He highlighted the achievements of the Obama administration in ending the war in Iraq and drawing down troops in Afghanistan. He said the administration is committed to supporting democratic transitions in the region, and to working with the international community to support the aspirations of the Syrian people. McDonough then answered questions on a number of topics, including Syria, Egypt, and the relationship between religion and foreign policy.
