EghtesadOnline: Syrian Public Works and Housing Minister Hussein Arnous discussed with Iran’s Roads and Urban Development Minister Abbas Akhoundi on Thursday the prospect of cooperation between Syria and Iran during Syria’s reconstruction.
Arnous said developing joint ventures between Syria and Iran is important for both countries in the upcoming reconstruction phase, especially since the Public Works and Housing Ministry is reviewing the organizational charts of cities and towns destroyed by terrorism, The Syrian Observer reported. He added that for the ministry to complete the construction in the best manner, it needs heavy equipment. Akhoundi, who is also the head of Iran-Syria Economic Committee and leading a delegation, asserted his country’s support for Syria in various fields and emphasized Iran’s readiness to contribute to rebuilding, developing, planning and reorganizing Syrian cities. The Iranian minister noted that Iran has the expertise in the field of building and establishing roads and bridges, particularly the establishment of infrastructure, according to Financial Tribune.
