Syrian President Dr. Bashar Al-Assad received yesterday a Russian delegation headed by the Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov and the architect of Russian relations with the Middle East Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.
The meeting which was also attended by protocol officials from both sides discussed Russian’s interest and contribution in a number of major projects in Syria related to reconstruction, especially in the infrastructure sector.
Following the Chinese willingness in contributing in the reconstruction projects in Syria, in line with and separate from the Chinese mega Belt and Road initiative, the Russian Federation has also showed support and commitment in investing and working on mega projects in the country.
Syria has quite a number of capable countries supporting it throughout the past years and for the years to come. These countries have the political will, the economic strength, and the know-how in rebuilding what the US and its stooges have destroyed, as well as building entire cities from scratch.
Iran has already went to a large extent in showing interest in contributing to Syria’s reconstruction projects. Iran has enough expertise and is capable as well in working in Syria, they do have as well the political will at the highest levels, only they lack a little push at the execution level. Some of the Iranian businessmen and in the country’s related economic bodies still try to approach the west in vain.
On the other hand, the junta ruling the US and its satellite European and regional states are only isolating themselves further from Syria, and the rest of independent countries around the world, by imposing more sanctions on their companies and individuals depriving them from any chance in real lucrative businesses. The US continuous failing hegemony attempts against Syria over the past decades, since 1956 at least, is yet to convince them to follow a different path in dealing with countries where its people have dignity and refuse to be enslaved by its corporations and lobbies enslaving the ordinary people of the USA itself, the EU, and other countries that throw itself under the feet of the ailing empire.
The head of the visiting Russian delegation to Damascus pointed out that Russia does not recognize the US and its NATO allies attempts in looting Syria’s oil, Mr. Borisov said: “We are proceeding from the fact that all natural resources in Syria must be under the control of the Syrian State,” referring to the Trump forces east of the Euphrates trying to control Syria’s oil fields with the help of Israel, Saudi, Turkey, Separatist Kurdish militias, and al-Qaeda’s derivatives.
