Syria Seeks Russian Help

Syrian President Bashar Assad has called on Russian companies to work in Syria to help restore the war-torn country. “Assad specifically underlined that in rebuilding Syria, the Syrian people rely on Russia’s help. He urged all Russian companies to do business with Syria,” Russian Communist Party member Alexander Yushchenko told RIA Novosti.  The announcement followed the arrival of a delegation of Russian Parliament members in Damascus last week. Assad proposed intensifying Russia-Syria cooperation in the oil sector, according to Yushchenko. He added that the two countries currently have contracts for exploration of oil fields on the Mediterranean shelf, saying that there are many other projects that Moscow and Damascus are ready to develop.
