At the beginning of his opening address, Patriarch Al-Rahi said, “Since the beginning of my patriarchal ministry, ie March 2011, I have been demanding that the road to the Holy Valley be paved but to no avail. This is a shame if every tourist has the right to access this holy valley and enjoy its views and pray in Temples and glorifying the Creator in it. ”
He considered that “the conference is a motivation for the State with its competent ministry to pay great attention to the sacred valley as a valuable national and spiritual landmark and a key element of domestic tourism, civil and religious.”
