Iran, Syria working to implement signed agreements: Amirabdollahian

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has said that Iran and Syria have witnessed progress in the implementation of a number of economic, commercial, and technological agreements signed between the two countries earlier this year.

During a joint press conference with his Syrian counterpart Faisal Mekdad in Tehran on Monday, Amirabdollahian said that one of the common priorities of Iran and Syria is to follow up on the agreements signed between the presidents of the two countries during President Raisi's visit to Damascus in May.

He said that with continued efforts of Cabinet ministers of the two countries, Iran and Syria are witnessing progress in implementing the agreements.

The minister said the agreements include establishing a joint insurance company, an agreement for trade in the national currencies of the two countries and the launch of a program for visits by Iranian pilgrims to Syria.

Amirabdollahian also strongly condemned the repeated attacks by the Zionist regime on Syria, saying that the regime is the main source of instability in the region.

The military presence of foreign countries in Syria will not contribute to stability and security in this country and the region, the top Iranian diplomat said.

He added that Iran understands the concerns of Turkiye regarding the security of the common borders with Syria, but said that military presence in Syria will not be a solution.

Mekdad, for his part, expressed his satisfaction with his visit to Iran and his meeting with Amirabdollahian, saying that the Syrian people are pleased with the trip that President Raisi had in early May to Syria.

While referring to the significance of the Syrian delegation's visit to Tehran and its role in deepening ties between the two countries, he underlined that Raisi's visit to Syria was not only for solving economic issues but also for deepening political and international cooperation in the region.
