Tehran has signed deals worth “several hundred million euros” with Damascus to repair Syria’s power grid in the Aleppo city and the provinces of Latakia and Deir Ezzor.
Syrian Electricity Minister Mohammad Zuhair Kharboutli traveled to Tehran as his country is looking to friendly states to help rebuild the country after more than six years of war with foreign-backed terrorists.
Syria’s economy has been battered under the ferocious conflict but Kharboutli said Tuesday the government is working relentlessly to restore the power system and that Iranian companies will have a role in rebuilding Syria.
The reconstruction of the country comes amid the Syrian army making steady advances in recent months and taking back cities and towns from terrorists.
“We are glad that good news is coming out about the situation in Syria these days, and the terrorists are facing defeat and complete elimination,” Sattar Mahmoudi, Iran’s caretaker energy minister, said during the signing ceremony.
