Tourism Minister: Syria’s tourism on the mend

Damascus, SANA-Minister of Tourism Bisher Yaziji said the tourism sector in Syria is on the mend as many tourism facilities have lately kicked into gear again.

The minister’s upbeat remarks came during his meeting with a foreign delegation of parliamentarians and lawyers currently on a visit to Syria.

A number of tourism investment projects have been jump-started and up to a thousand tourism facilities have become operative again, the minister remarked, which he said offers ground for optimism.

The delegations visiting Syria have a chance to have a close look at the situation in it, Yaziji added, highlighting the huge toll the war has taken on the Syrian people.

He predicted that the policies of the countries hostile to Syria will backfire in the near future when defeated terrorists return to their own countries.

In a press statement, president of the delegation Declan Hayes said his visit to Syria, the ninth to date, is a confirmation that Syria has friends from many countries whose mission is to alter the stereotyped image about the situation in it.
