The President of the Council of Ministers Saad Hariri sponsored this evening at the Seaside Arena the "Taef Forum: Achievements, Numbers and Partners" organized by "the Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development" in cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for the 14th commemoration of the martyrdom of Prime Minister Rafic Hariri.
Prime Minister Hariri delivered a speech on the occasion, in which he said: "I express my gratitude to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and the Crown Prince for sending the Advisor at the Royal Court, Nizar Al Aloula, to be with us today, confirming the Kingdom's permanent support for Lebanon and the Lebanese.
I would also thank the Ambassador of the Kingdom to Lebanon, Walid Al-Bukhari, and the Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development for organizing this forum. Thank you all for attending this forum, which bears the name of Taef. Taef goes beyond the conference sponsored by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that ended civil war, and beyond the National accord agreement that constituted a new Constitution for Lebanon, to become a model for many countries in the region eager to return to civil peace and security through political settlement.
I would like to thank those being honored today. You are the companions of Martyr Prime Minister Rafic Hariri on the road to reconstruction. Lebanon needs your experience and contribution to the second revival path that starts today."
