Addressing the diverse gathering of Sri Lankans living in Jordan, Ambassador A.L.M Lafeer, elaborated the process of reconciliation and harmony of the government of Sri Lanka and asked to contribute to this process in their individual capacities, citing life of the Lord Jesus Crist as an illustration.

The Ambassador further noted the importance of being virtuous and true to oneself, despite undue influence created by the contemporary society and media.

A sumptuous luncheon was hosted at the end of the event to all participants, in keeping with the yule-time spirit.
