Russia signs agreement for green corridor from Syria

The Russian Federation and Syria have signed an agreement in Damascus for the creation of a green corridor for the export of agricultural products from the Arab republic.

The Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, Dmitryi Olegovich Rogozin, who heads the Russian part of the permanent bilateral commission on trade-economic and scientific-technical cooperation, stated that the Russian side is ready to consider any strategy that will serve to support the economy of the Syrian Arab Republic, and that Syria "will actively supply citrus fruits, vegetables and other fruit crops, which are of the highest quality." 

According to Rogozin, "Syria used to be a supplier of oil and grain, but now Syria has no oil or grain or other products. In this sense, the Russian Federation considers every opportunity to support the trade and economic relations with Damascus."

Dmitry Rogozin also announced that president Assad promised to guarantee the right conditions for the development of Russian projects in Syria.
