President Bashar al-Assad affirmed that food security ensured by the agricultural sector is one of the key factors that consolidated Syria’s independent decisions over the past decades. Therefore, one of the primary goals of terrorists was to cut off roads and block the transfer of agricultural crops in service of foreign plots.
President Assad was speaking during his meeting on Thursday, with members of the Executive Office of the Arab Agricultural Engineers Union.
The delegates congratulated the Syrian leadership and people on the imminent victory against terrorism, hailing the Syrian people as productive and whose self-sufficiency in the agricultural field aided them in the war that targeted the basics of their lives.
President Assad considered that trade unions have a political role as the genuine intermediate between the executive authority and the people, as well as a social role given their proximity to all social strata.
The President added that trade unions must assume their role in alerting to the problems that befall Arab society, chief among them is social disintegration, which will be a loophole through which the West can carry out its plans to ignite civil wars in the region, affirming that the real advancement in any sector requires holding the keys to the cutting edge of technology and research.
