Caracas, SANA- Chairman and members of the Syrian-Venezuelan Parliamentary Friendship Committee were appointed during an official ceremony held at the Venezuelan National Assembly building.
Acting Charge d’affaires of the Syrian Embassy in Venezuela Wael Dairki and a number of the Embassy members attended the ceremony.
The second vice-president of the National Assembly, Vanessa Monteiro, shed a light on the history of Syrian–Venezuelan relations linking the two friendly countries.
Montero reviewed Venezuelan Late President Hugo Chavez stances towards Syria and its people, in addition to the firm bases linking the two countries.
The Venezuelan diplomat stressed the necessity of strengthening the economic and trade relations between the two countries in face of the Us and Western unilateral coercive measures and other Western hostile policies against Syria and Venezuela.
Chairman of the Syrian-Venezuelan Parliamentary Friendship Committee, Imad Saab, in turn, highly appreciated the Venezuelan Late President Chavez’s stances toward Syria and his historic visit to Damascus in 2010.
For his part, Dairki expressed hope that the formation of the committee would constitute a main step in enhancing cooperation and coordination nor only between the parliaments of the two countries but only in all domains.
