Syrian Foreign Minister Fayssal Mikdad stressed that Damascus’ main concern is to consolidate the Arab solidarity in order to counter common challenges.
In a joint press conference with visiting Algerian counterpart Ramtane Lamamra, Mikdad said that Syrian-Algerian relations are deeply- rooted.
“Algeria stood by the Syrian people along the years of the crisis, and condemned terrorism and Western coercive measures imposed on Syria,” Mikdad said as quoted by SANA news agency.
Lamamra, for his part, said that Algeria and Syria share the same glories and victories.
“We agreed on strengthening economic and commercial cooperation in serve of interests of the Algerian and Syrian peoples.”
“Syria’s vacant seat in the Arab League harms the joint Arab work,” the top Algerian diplomat underlined.
