Damascus, SANA- Foreign and Expatriates Minister Dr. Faysal Mikdad received credentials of Emmanuel Kalenzi as responsible for coordinating projects of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in Syria.
Talks during the meeting dealt with enhancing cooperation between Syria and the UNIDO through expanding the activities and projects that the organization is implementing in Syria in the field of technical assistance and support and building potentials.
He added that it is important to have a resident representative in Syria who would follow up on the work and the implemented projects.
Mikdad stressed that the unilateral economic measures imposed on the Syrian people have no basis in the international law, and they aim to harm the Syrian people and hinder development and lead to impede the national and United Nations’ efforts to revive national economy and international development.
For his part, representative of UNIDO underlined the Organization’s interest in cooperating with the Syrian Government in order to improve the citizens’ livelihood and early recovery efforts, expressing his aspiration to launch several new projects that would respond to the needs of the Syrian people in all areas covered by the Organization.
