BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri paid tribute to the Syrian people and expressed his full solidarity with them, in a statement issued Monday by his press office on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

Hariri hoped that before the next Eid, they, along with other Arab peoples, would have succeeded in overcoming their difficult ordeals and achieved their aspirations for regimes that meet their ambitions, the statement said.

It also congratulated the Lebanese people, Muslims in particular, on the coming of Eid, wishing that they would “see their state building project prevail and bring security and stability to Lebanon as well as strengthen the bonds of national unity and solidarity among all Lebanese, in their quest to uncover the truth and achieve justice.”
