Tagalog News: Mainit na pagtanggap ng mga Pilipino kay Swiss Pres. Couchepin pinapurihan

Manila (13 August) -- Pinasalamatan at pinapurihan ni Swiss Ambassador to the Philippines Peter Sutter si Pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo maging ang buong sambayang Pilipino sa mainit na pagtanggap ng bansa kay Swiss Confederation President Pascal Couchepin na nagsagawa ng kanyang tatlong araw na state visit sa bansa.

Ang papuri na ito ni Peter Sutter sa Pangulo at mga Pilipino ay kanyang ipinaabot bago nagsimula ang special screening ng "The Alps," isang maikling documentary film na pinanood nina Pangulong Arroyo at Swiss President Counchepin kasama ang mga miyembro ng business community at diplomatic corps.

Ipinakita sa nasabing documentary film na iprenesenta ng Holcim Philippines, ang nangungunang Swiss cement company ang tungkol sa madamdaming istorya ni mountaineer John Harlin III kung saan buo ang loob nitong inakyat ang 12,000-foot Mt Eiger, ang pinakatutok ng Alps upang iligtas ang buhay ng kanyang amang si John Harlin II.

Ayon kay Sutter ang determinasyon ni Harlin na akyatin ang Mt. Eiger ay sumisimbolo lamang ng matatag ng determinasyon ng mga mamamayan ng Switzerland na malampasan ang mga hamon upang makamit ang minimithing demokrasya. Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng determinasyon at self-reliance na ipinakita ng mamamayan lalo na sa isolated communities sa kabila ng hindi magandang kondisyon ng Alps. (Abbenal/PIA 12) [top]
