Russian businesses have been expanding the portfolio of contacts in Syria for the post-crisis period, with participation in building a large water pump facility on the Tigris River featuring prominently on the list of likely projects, Russian ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak told TASS in an interview. “In defiance of the objective hurdles, first and foremost, the lingering problems in the field of security, business contacts in Russia and Syria are continuing,” he said. “Moreover, a number of remarkable joint projects were launched of late.” Kinshchak said that the period of preparations for such contracts normally lasted several years.
