Minister of Public Works Hussein Arnous met with the Iranian Ambassador Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani to discuss the implementation of signed agreements between Iran and Syria, together with Iranian corporate contribution in Syria’s reconstruction stage.
Arnous claimed studies are underway for the reconstruction of Syria’s damaged infrastructure, in addition to working on enhancing Syrian construction companies’ ability to support the national economy.
The minister also invited Iranian companies to contribute to service projects in the reconstruction stage.
