for being here. It is a great pleasure for the Embassy of Indonesia to participate
in the annual Women’s League Garden Party as a way to build friendship and
closeness between us and Lebanon.
thanks also to Madame Lamia Kawar for giving the Embassy an opportunity to introduce
some of Indonesian cultural heritages to accompany us in the gathering. It
shows the Women’s League constructive attention in building a universal
cross-culture relation, especially for us Indonesia and Lebanon. I very much appreciate
dear ladies and gentlemen,
you all know or heard Indonesia as a land of multi-culture. We have many traditions,
arts, culinary, folklore dancing throughout our five main islands, Sumatera, Jawa,
Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Papua, and other thousands islands. All of these are
still largely practiced and preserved in modern times.
afternoon we are pleased to organize an Indonesian cultural performances of
dancing and musical instruments from Jawa and Sulawesi, combined with modern
instruments, performed by the cultural teams of the Embassy and the Indonesian
Contingent in UNIFIL. We are happy that our contingent could participate in
this party in Beirut is able to do cultural performances and could perform it, as
they usually organize a show to entertain people in the South Lebanon as well
as in others UNIFIL’s gathering, besides their main task as peace keepers.
the performances entertain you and could cheer up the party.
end, I again hope this gathering could preserve a warm relationship among us,
as well as my wishes for the peace and prosperity of Lebanon.
I thank you and have a pleasant party. Shukran, Terima kasih.
