2015-02-19 22:34:50

Tourism Minister Bushre Yaziji discussed Thursday with Ambassador of Indonesia in Damascus Joko Harianto preliminary steps to enhance tourism relations between Syria and Indonesia through marketing programs and tourist investment.

During the meeting, Minister Yaziji called on news agencies and tourism offices in Indonesia to visit Syria and market for the peace tourism in the country as well as correcting the distorted image circulated by western media on the reality of events here.

He affirmed that the cost of tourism in Syria is still one of the cheapest countries in the world as many places are witnessing large tourist activities, saying that the Syrian government always protects the humanitarian heritage in the country and the army offers sacrifices to keep Palmyra and Aleppo ancient cities safe.

The Indonesian Ambassador said after the meeting that people in his country pray every Friday for peace in Syria, adding “our people know the reality of what is going on in Syria.”

He affirmed that Islam in Indonesia is against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization, describing the relations between the two countries as historic.

Ambassador Harianto affirmed the stance of his country which calls for reaching a political solution to the crisis in Syria and builds a democratic society.
