President of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines, and Agriculture (ICCIMA) Gholam Hossein Shafei on Tuesday referred to strategic relations between Iran and Syria while noting that few economic ties and failure to implement bilateral agreements between the two countries has to be addressed.

Iran Chamber chief and Minister of Industries, Mine and Trade Reza fatemi Amin as well as a number of Iranian Parliament Members had a meeting with Syria’s Oil Minister in Damascus.   

Cooperation on industrial, mining, oil and energy sectors topped the agenda of the meeting.

Speaking during the meeting, the Syrian minister referred to his country’s needs for LPG and PG and underlined the necessity for further cooperation on mining and excavation projects.

The Iranian industry minister, for his part, briefed the Syrian side on Iran’s capabilities in oil industry, and private sector products in different energy, industry and mine areas.  

The two ministers agreed to set up a joint committee to discuss and implement the issues agreed upon in today’s meeting.  

The Syrian energy minister called for barter trade between the two countries, saying Iran can barter the refinery and mining equipment needed by Syria for mining products and other Syrian goods.  

In the meantime, the Iran Chamber president said that no one of the agreements signed between Iran and Syrian has been implemented so far which requires both countries to probe into the problems in this regard.

Shafei said that Iran private sector is ready to cooperate with the Syrian part. He however noted that it is up to the governments to pave the way for such cooperation.
