PM Hariri hosts women of ‘Pedal for Peace’ ride

9-10-2017

The prime minister, Saad Hariri, met on Saturday 120 women from across the world who participated recently in the ‘pedal for peace’ campaign. “You saw Lebanon, and noticed that it is different from what you heard about in the media,” Hariri told them.  “Lebanon is a country of coexistence, culture, history and beauty, but it may witness sometimes chaos, suffering and hardships,” Hariri said. Despite the 18-sect diversity, “we live together as one person, but sometimes politics divide us,” he stressed. “When you go back to your country, you have to tell your friends how beautiful Lebanon is,” he said, hoping they will return to the country one day with their families and friends. For her part, British activist, Deta Reagan lauded Lebanon’s beauty and diversity, saying: “We all want to come back for a visit. It was an opportunity to be part of this experience. We all believe in peace and we all support Lebanon. we shall carry the experience to our countries, for we are here for the cause of peace.” (Al Mustaqbal, Al Diyar, October 8, 9, 2017)
