In statements to SANA, the Syrian participants said they attended the event to inform the audience about the terrorism targeting Syria and how the Syrian people are standing up to it.
Waving Syrian flags throughout all activities of the festivity, the Syrian participants said they received a warm welcome by the French citizens participating in the event.
