Damascus, SANA-Syria’s permanent representative to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, said on Tuesday that Damascus International Fair is Syria’s message to the whole world that the country has recovered and normal life returned the homeland.
“Another message from outside the country into the inside that the international community, through the participation of more than 43 states, is ready to be a partner in the political, economic and military victory,” al-Jaafari added during a visit to the Fair.
“Re-opening the Fair is not only a contribution to the military effort to realize the decisive victory phase, but it is also part of the political and military victory,” al-Jaafari added.
He affirmed that the big commercial transactions in the Fair would break the economic unilateral measures and launch the reconstruction process.
Syria’s Ambassador in Tehran Adnan Mahmoud, for his part, said that the Iranian large participation in the Fair, represented by 40 companies in the strategic sectors of energy, electricity and petrochemicals, reflects the important economic dimension of relations between Syria and Iran.
Mahmoud added in a statement to SANA that the Fair indicates that “the Syrian economy entered the stage of recovery and it is going ahead into offering tangible services on the level of businessmen.”
He affirmed that there are 65 Iranian businessmen who represent Chambers of Commerce and Industry in different Iranian cities.
Syria’s Ambassador in Beirut Ali Abdul-Kareem also affirmed that the Lebanese participation in this economic event is “relatively big”, describing economic ties between the two countries as good and going into larger levels.
