On the occasion of the National Day of Lebanon Ambassador Mansour Abdallah hosted his first reception on Thursday.

The event took place at Park Hotel and after almost a decade for the first time many Heads of Missions were present at the reception as a proof of the popularity of Ambassador Abdallah. Among them were ambassadors of Albania, Japan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Australia, Korea, Palestine, Congo, Italy, Slovenia, Argentina, Moldova, Serbia, New Zealand, Belarus, Portugal, Estonia, Romania and Bangladesh. . Also chargé d’affaires of Unisted States, Egypt, France, Germany, Malaysia, Hungary, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland were among the distinguished guests.

While the government was represented by Deputy Minister of Economics Mustafa Sever the two surprise guests of the event were the new Ambassador of Iraq and the new Ambassador of Tunisia.

After the welcoming speech of Ambassador Abdallah a brief speech was delivered by Deputy Minister Sever congratulating Lebanon on its 70th anniversary. 

SPEECH OF H.E. MANSOUR ABDALLAH,
AMBASSADOR OF LEBANON TO TURKEY
ON THE OCCASION OF THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INDEPENDENCE
OF THE REPUBLIC OF LEBANON,



It is my pleasure to welcome you all and to celebrate together the Anniversary of the Independence of Lebanon. Lebanon like all Peoples and all Countries get the inspiration from this great day to forge a better future. But the reality is that our proud days are made of sufferings and sacrifices.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

To become a Diplomat, the title of my essay was: The price of a book is by far less than the price of a gun, but more difficult to pay.

At a young age I learned that all philosophies and religions of all cultures and traditions aimed to bring happiness and prosperity to Mankind,

But as I travelled the world I have seen that in the name of justice and religions the suffering of Mankind is increasing.

As I travelled the world I have seen hunger, disease, ignorance, and poverty, I have seen greed, violence, injustice and wars.

As I travelled the world I have seen Peoples and Countries tempted to take part or taking part in the destruction of past and present cultures and civilizations.

It is time we stop killing each other, we stop settling accounts; we should get together to face our common problems and we should show more our love than our religion, more our kindness than our force and more our solidarity than our differences, we should buy more books than guns.

It is really a dangerous world, and it is a paradox that our politics are generating more problems than solutions.

Lebanon, my Country, is small by size, great by its contribution to humanity and the world civilization. However it hurts me, like it hurts you, to watch my country suffering of its wars and the wars of others.
That is why I call for peace, I ask you to join my call for peace and reconciliation in the world, and I believe if all good people, if all good nations stand together and work together we can make a difference.

Our poet Said Akl said that we the Lebanese are friends and neighbors of the entire world.

Lebanon, my country, shares with this great country Turkey a strong friendship, a long history, we have common traditions, similar music and food, we have the same climate and landscape and we share the Mediterranean Sea. When I arrived I felt at home, in another place.

Turkey was always to our side, our peoples are friends, our leaders are friends and our friendship will be stronger every day, I hope I can contribute to the development of our relationship, and I hope together we can contribute to the peace and prosperity of our region, I hope we can make a better world.

Happy Independence Day for Lebanon,
Freedom, justice and prosperity for the world,
Peace on Earth,
Long live Lebanon, long live Turkey,
Welcome and thank you.
