DAMASCUS, April 20. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov and Syrian President Bashar Assad discussed Moscow’s efforts to help the Middle Eastern country’s economic revival at a meeting in Damascus on Saturday.
"After our meeting in December we proceeded within the reached agreements and so far expect no breakdowns of planned actions. I am convinced that all our efforts aimed at the Syrian economic revival will be successful," Borisov said at a meeting with Assad.
According to Syrian President, the meeting will focus on "certain details." "Sometimes those details are very important. Hopefully, all agreements planned during our previous meeting will be implemented," he added.
In December, at the meeting of the Russian-Syrian intergovernmental commission, which Borisov heads from the Russian side, the two countries entered into a number of commercial agreements in the fields of hydrocarbons exploration and production on the Syrian territory. Moreover, a memorandum of understanding between industry and trade ministries of the two countries and other documents were inked.
