Syria Our Fidelity, Its Development Our Responsibility

Excerpts from H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria's speech at the celebration of the 16th Anniversary of the foundation of the Syrian Trust for Development :

 "Development is not only infrastructure and projects by the State, not a unilateral effort by one side. Development is a combination between the State and Man, the project and the citizen."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

 "There is always the need for creative thought for development projects and with every initiative there should be a  generalized humane and morale value and with participation, invention and openness, we can develop all of Syria as far as construction and humans."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

 

"During the war on Syria, the development of the mind was absent; where the alternative was ignorance with its extremism and terrorism; once the development of manners was absent, the alternative was chaos and destruction; once the development of morals was absent, the alternative was opportunism and perversion. Once the national spirit was absent, unfortunately, the alternative was treason. Development is but culture and the culture of development starts with dialogue which unites visions and concepts."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

"Fidelity is something great and difficult and our fidelity is more difficult and sacred hence it was baptized with the blood and the soil liberated with the souls of our martyrs and the bodies of our wounded. Before the war our fidelity was dear and is more dear today, as it lies in every martyr's mother, who lost her son and remained strong and firm."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

 

" Our Fidelity is every wounded who sacrificed his body for Syria. Our fidelity is every Syrian child who goes to school though of fear and whose friend was martyred before his eyes and continued and excelled. Our fidelity is every employee, student or teacher who stood firm and went to his work, school or university. Our fidelity is every person going to his workshop, factory or shop, and is every Syrian besieged by terrorism or deported by terrorism. Our fidelity is every grain of Syria's soil, whether over or under earth. Our fidelity is the whole people who stood firm, sacrificed and withstood. Our fidelity is Syria, the dearest more than anything."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

"Syria is development and fidelity and principles as the compass for everyone who wants to reconstruct and improve the country. It is the compass for every person capable   and we are capable through dialogue, participation and uniting the objectives. Such principles are the cornerstone for everyone who wants Syria better than it was. All have a task and a role. Participation is culture and not a decree, practice and not imposition. Participation is to feel responsibility. "

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

 

 

"Thus, we can regain the strong, free, and firm Syria, free as it should be and not as they wanted it to be when they distorted the principles and concepts; once they raised the slogans of freedom, democracy and it was the freedom of slaughter and skinning, and the freedom of  conspiring with the enemies. Freedom is not to destroy your homeland, and not to burn buildings, not to set explosives wherever you want, not to terrorize the innocents, freedom is responsibility, is the freedom of thinking, the freedom of creativity. Freedom is to have an opinion and a voice represented on you, your society and your country."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

"Democracy is participation, respect for diversity, acceptance for the other. They tried to distort the principle of nationalism. They, however, failed as we remained united and committed to our principles, culture, identity and to our diversity. We are the mythical Phoenix as to be resurrected to build our country, and we will remain sacrificing everything for our country. And now, SAWA, together are to start anew, because together we develop Syria and Syrians."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

"Syria is the light shining over all of us. This light is only when it joins multi-colors within as the basic light of Syria through the diversity of its colors, and richness of its cultures, though of the bids by many as to make every color isolated as not to keep Syria of the same light. They failed and were not able to isolate the Syrian light of diversity. 7 years now, and these colors glitter more and all are aware that the diversity of the rooted in the Syrians colors is the source of richness, power, and light. All are sure by now that the strength of the individual is with his surroundings and all are for one and one is based on all."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.

"Syria is fidelity and its development is the responsibility. For any developmental organization as to succeed is not important what it has of foreign relations as much as this organization is domestically deeply rooted and well established in commitment to the principle that Syria is our fidelity and our responsibility to develop it.."

H.E. Mrs. Asma Al-Assad, the First Lady of Syria, July 21, 2017.
