President al-Assad awards Mrs. Najah al-Attar the Umayyad National Order

Damascus, SANA- President Bashar al-Assad on Monday awarded Mrs. Najah al-Attar, the Vice-President, the Umayyad National Order, in the presence of cultural, intellectual and literary figures in Syria.

President al-Assad said during the event, while awarding Dr. al-Attar the order “The importance of the order comes from the significance of the figure who holds it first then from their noble message second”.

“Offering an Order or medal to a patriotic figure is a national occasion, not a personal one… patriotism as a feeling, belonging and a thought is based on feelings, principles and concepts of society that is formed from its personalities as individuals,” President al-Assad added.

The Syrian Presidency noted that Dr. al-Attar held the homeland in her heart and soul and struggled for it in both word and deed; thus this Order derived from her value and prestige, adding “Syria has always been proud to honor its great figures who gave their homeland a lot of their works and principles over decades and generations, for this, the honor became a national event par excellence.”
