“Reconstruction of Syria’s infrastructures is a necessity at the present juncture and Iranian companies are ready for economic interactions with Syria during the reconstruction era,” Zonnour said in a meeting with Syrian Parliament Speaker Hamoudeh Sabbaq in Damascus on Wednesday.
He also stressed that Iran views support for the resistance pivot as its responsibility and will remain beside Syria in fighting against the terrorist groups.
Sabbaq, for his part, appreciated Iran’s full-fledged support for the Syrian government and nation, and said that the Iranian military advisors’ sacrifices beside the Syrian army led to the Damascus’ victory against the terrorists.
Syrian Ambassador to Tehran Adnan Mahmoud, in a conference in Tehran on Tuesday, voiced his country’ enthusiasm for having Iranian companies and investors in the reconstruction of the war-torn country.
Addressing a conference on investment opportunities in Syria, held at Trade Promotion Organization of Iran, Mahmoud said that grounds have been paved for the participation of Iranian investors and contractors in different sectors of the Syrian economy.
He said the Syrian government considers the Iranian private sector its main partner in the reconstruction and economic projects.
Syria has been involved in a war against terrorism since 2011 when the sporadic uprisings in the country were used by extremist groups backed by some states in the region and the West. Most of the occupied territories in Syria have been retaken by government forces and the stability has been restored to the country.
Early in September, more than 60 companies and firms from Iran showcased their capabilities, products and potentials at the 61st edition of Damascus International Fair in Syria, bidding for contracts on reconstruction projects in the war-torn country.
