In a meeting between Chairman of the Iranian-Syrian Economic Relations Development Committee Rostam Qassemi and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Monday, the two sides voiced readiness to pave the ground for the further development of their mutual cooperation.
Qassemi, in the meeting, said that Iran and Syria enjoys a vast untapped economic potential, adding that there are a large number of projects in Syria which are good investment opportunities.
He also voiced Iran’s support for the Syrian people and government in anti-terrorism campaign.
President al-Assad, for his part, underlined Iran's experiences and knowhow in various technical, engineering and scientific fields and called for further cooperation between Tehran and Damascus.
Iran has appointed Qassemi, the country's former oil minister, as the chairman of a special economic committee to coordinate efforts with Damascus to start reconstructing the damaged infrastructures of Syria as soon as possible.
Syrian has been involved in war against terrorism since 2011 when certain western countries and their regional allies interfered in Damascus' internal affairs.
Since March 2011, so many international terrorists flocked to Syria to fight against al-Assad government with western arms and regional countries' petrodollars.
The foreign-backed insurgency ruined infrastructures in various parts of Syria, but the government, that has gained upper hand in many battlefields, is resolved to reconstruct the country with the friendly nations' assistance.
