As the spirit of Eid encourages the promotion of goodwill and harmony, let me also say my thoughts are with those Muslims in parts of the world affected by conflict. I was humbled to witness firsthand the effects of the conflict in Syria when I met refugees in Lebanon in May this year.The Australian Government is committed to advancing international peace, security and harmony, and respect for all faiths and backgrounds both at home and abroad.With these thoughts I offer again my congratulations on this special day. Eid Mubarak.
