Italian Delegation Pledges Support to Damascus Chamber of Commerce

The board of directors of the Damascus Chamber of Commerce on Sunday discussed with a visiting Italian delegation means to provide humanitarian and medical aid to alleviate the suffering of Syrians due to the crisis.

Ghassan al-Qalaa, the head of the Damascus Chamber of Commerce, highlighted the importance of developing relations between the two countries in all sectors, mainly trade relations.

Members of the chamber also stressed the need to put an end to the economic sanctions imposed on the Syrian people, as well as the ban on banking transactions. They called for facilitating the supply of products, goods and equipment to hospitals and associations working in social, medical and humanitarian fields.

Members of the Italian delegation also affirmed their support for Syria, stressing the importance of learning about what is actually happening in the country, especially when many Western media outlets are trying to mislead public opinion and distort the reality of events in Syria.

For his part, Suleiman Mahmalat, a member of the delegation, said the visit aims at evaluating the humanitarian situation in Syria due to the crisis and discussing the possibilities of providing and delivering humanitarian aid.
