Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi said meetings between the Syrian and Iranian economic technical committees were positive and fruitful and will help boost strategic relations between Syria and Iran.
Halqi, heading a committees meeting in the presence of the special advisor to the Iranian Foreign Minister for Economic Affairs, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, said he appreciated the efforts exerted by the two to accelerate implementation of agreements in the fields of health, economy and development.
He emphasized the need to commit to the timetable set for the implementation of the agreements, particularly in regard to the restoration of power generation and the supply of 300 Megawatts of electricity per hour to the network.
Halqi reaffirmed that the government is committed to providing the basic needs for Syrians in the lead up to the holy month of Ramadan.
The Iranian advisor, in turn, said that the agreements will be implemented as soon as possible, adding that Iran will start providing Syria with basic food stuffs, medicine, and oil products.
