MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Russian businesses have been expanding the portfolio of contacts in Syria for the post-crisis period, with participation in building a large water pump facility on the Tigris River featuring prominently on the list of likely projects, Russian ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak told TASS in an interview.

"In defiance of the objective hurdles, first and foremost, the lingering problems in the field of security, business contacts in Russia and Syria are continuing," he said. "Moreover, a number of remarkable joint projects were launched of late."

As an example Kinshchak mentioned the operation of the pipeline laying company Stroitransgaz. "It managed to avoid curtailing operations in the most troubled period and keeps expanding its contracts portfolio for the future," he said. "Various options are being considered with a view to the post-crisis period for getting involved in more large-scale projects, for instance, the construction of a large water pump facility on the Tigris River," he said.

Kinshchak said that the period of preparations for such contracts normally lasted several years.

"I believe that the situation in the country will be stabilized by then and security matters settled," he said.

The Russian embassy furnishes the required support for Russian companies in advancing contacts with Syrian partners.

"I use this opportunity to urge Russian businesses to take more active steps. This is the best time to launch operations in Syria," he said.
