Tehran (ISNA) - Iran Minister of Transport and Urban Development, Rostam Ghasemi, met with Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the Syrian Arab Republic, Faisal Mekdad in Tehran to discuss economic cooperation.

The Iranian Minister mentioned that Iran and Syria have fruitful collaborations in different fields; however, economic cooperation has not been fulfilled as expected. Thus following previous negotiations and MoUs, they have to be implemented practically.

Faisal Mekdad pointed to the pressures exerted by USA against the two countries and mentioned that it will not harm the two countries’ determination for continued cooperation.

The Syrian Minister emphasized holding the meeting for High Commission for Economic Cooperation.
