DAMASCUS, (SANA)- with the participation of 250 academic, political, media, art and parliamentary figures from 18 countries in response to the invitation of an independent Syrian youth group, 'Syria is Fine' campaign started its activities on Sunday.
The participants visited the Mariamite Cathedral, al-Azem Palace, the Umayyad Mosque and Damascene old markets.
At the Mariamite Cathedral, Patriarch Ignatius IV Hazim of Antioch and All The East said "We do not need to show anything other than our reality …the reality is what you will see with your own eyes… we live in peace and the situation in Syria is different from what is being shown in some media channels"
He added "we are proud that we live in a country that is full of love among all sects, and what is being broadcast by some channel is untrue."
