Damascus, SANA – Prime Minister Wael al-Halaqi expressed hope that Syria’s special relations with Russia will be further enhanced and new means will be sought to open new prospects of bilateral cooperation.
Al-Halaqi’s remarks came during his meeting with the Russian Ambassador in Damascus Azmatullah Kol Mohammadov, who is ending his diplomatic mission in Syria.
The Premier used the meeting to voice his appreciation of the Russian people and leadership’s stances in support of Syria, both on the political level and in terms of the Russian contribution to easing the economic blockade imposed on Syria and alleviating the humanitarian situation.
Al-Halaqi also took the opportunity of the meeting to invite Russian companies and businessmen to establish new investment, development and services projects in Syria.
Such projects, he noted, are important especially when it comes to the post-crisis reconstruction stage, which the Premier stressed “will involve only the Syrians and national companies and the real friends of the Syrian people.”
The Russian Ambassador, in turn, affirmed that the Russian leadership is committed to supporting its Syrian counterpart on all levels and keen to take part in the reconstruction process, in addition to getting the idea of a political inter-Syrian dialogue implemented.
