MNA – Adnan Hassan Mahmood, Ambassador of Syria to Tehran says that his country will keep its doors open for Iran’s investment in various fields, including setting up free trade zones in the country.
Adnan Hassan Mahmood made the remarks in a joint Iran-Syria business forum in Tehran on Saturday, saying “in order to develop trade relations, we welcome Iran’s investment in various fields, including building free trade zones in our country.”

The Syrian ambassador further called for removing obstacles on the way of expanding bilateral relations between Iran and Syria.
Also in the meeting, the Iranian ambassador to Damascus Javad Tork Abadi said that through economic linkages, the two countries can create a powerful economic zone.
Tork Abadi said that there are ample economic fields in Syria for Iranian companies to invest in the reconstruction period.
In the meeting, the two sides’ chambers of the commerce signed an agreement to strengthen bilateral trade.
The two countries’ businessmen also held bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the forum.
