Iran stood by Syria in fighting terrorism and plays an important role in reducing challenges imposed on the Syrian people by western nations, the Syrian Prime Minister said.
Imad Khamis made these remarks, Wednesday, in an interview with Al Mayadeen TV channel.
“Iran and Syria have long-standing ties and we are mulling over establishing economic relations with the country,” Khamis said.
Khamis also stated that he appreciated Iran’s support for the Syrian people.
There is now tendency among Syrian companies to engage with the countries of the East, especially Iran, Russia and China, he added.
