He pointed out that the close relations between the two countries encourage finding new perspectives to increase the volume of economic, trade and industrial cooperation, in addition to establishing joint investment projects.

He expressed the government’s keenness to establish investment and development projects in Syria, particularly in the stage of reconstruction.

He also stressed the insistence of the Syrian people on making an inter-Syrian dialogue without foreign interference or dictations, voicing the role of the Russian leadership in this regard and its contribution to create a suitable ground for dialogue.

For their part, members of the delegation expressed appreciation of the Syrian people’s resilience against the universal war that is targeting them and the sacrifices they are providing to preserve the unity of the country, stressing their standing by the side of the Syrians.
