Russia and China are unlikely to compete in the economic recovery of Syria, Russia’s Ambassador in Beijing Andrei Denisov told TASS on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF).
"In fact, I would not talk about competition. There are aspects our Chinese colleagues are particularly good at, such as the construction of infrastructure facilities. This is their strong point. If they can provide effective assistance in this area, we welcome it."
"The scale of reconstruction is so huge that there will be a place for everyone. Moreover, our country and China are not going to isolate themselves, on the contrary, we are actively calling on all countries to participate in the reconstruction of Syria’s ruined economy and the social sector, "the ambassador said.
"So everyone will have a job," he concluded.
