Syrian PM Underlines Expansion of Trade, Economic Ties with Iran

Syrian Prime Minister Imad Khamis stressed that his country attaches great importance to the development of trade and economic relations and cooperation with Iran.

Khamis made the remarks in Damascus on Wednesday in a meeting with Chairman of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mojtaba Zonnour and his accompanying delegation.

During the meeting, they discuss ways to expand economic relations between the two countries, and underscored the importance of investing in the private sector to increase trade exchanges and expand economic cooperation between Iran and Syria.

Khamis, for his part, underlined that Damascus and Tehran have enhanced relations in all fields today, specially at political and economic levels, through bilateral meetings and the formation of joint committees to pursue signed agreements.

He also announced the government's efforts to make good use of domestic resources and formulate a strategic plan to improve the economic situation in Syria in the future.

Zonnour stressed Iran's desire to transfer valuable expertise to Syria in rebuilding the country, particularly in the fields of energy, agriculture, infrastructure development, road construction, and strategic industries.

The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Syrian parliament and Javad Torkabadi, the ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Damascus.

Syria has been involved in a war against terrorism since 2011 when the sporadic uprisings in the country were used by extremist groups backed by some states in the region and the West. Most of the occupied territories in Syria have been retaken by government forces and the stability has been restored to the country.

Early in September, more than 60 companies and firms from Iran showcased their capabilities, products and potentials at the 61st edition of Damascus International Fair in Syria, bidding for contracts on reconstruction projects in the war-torn country.

In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Syrian Ambassador to Tehran Adnan Mahmoud voiced his country’ enthusiasm for having Iranian companies and investors in the reconstruction of the war-torn country.

Addressing a conference on investment opportunities in Syria, held at Trade Promotion Organization of Iran, Mahmoud said that grounds have been paved for the participation of Iranian investors and contractors in different sectors of the Syrian economy.

He said the Syrian government considers the Iranian private sector its main partner in the reconstruction and economic projects.
