Iran to help Syria repair water, sewage infrastructure: Minister

Press TV – Iranian companies and technicians will help Syria rebuild a water and sewage infrastructure that has been ravaged through years of war and militancy in the Arab country.

Iran’s Minister of Energy Reza Ardakanian made the announcement on Wednesday following a meeting with Syria’s Minister for Water Resources Nabil al-Hassan in Tehran.

Ardakanian said a memorandum of understanding (MoU) detailing plans and investment needed for the repair projects will be signed between the two sides on Thursday.

“This MoU can create a mechanism for contribution of the Iranian companies to dam construction, hydroelectric power plants and building sewage treatment facilities (in Syria),” said the Iranian minister while briefing the reporters.

He said that deputy ministers from the two countries will head a joint a committee to monitor progress on various plans and projects, adding that an executive phase of the works will begin soon after expert delegations from the two sides visit the projects in Syria.

Syrian minister al-Hassan, for his part, elaborated on previous statements by Syrian officials that Iranian companies will have the upper hand in reconstructions projects in the Arab country.

Iran has already embarked on various projects in Syria, a country where years of foreign-backed militancy has led to a massive destruction of the infrastructure.

Energy sector is a major field of activity for Iranian companies in Syria as repeated outages have caused various problems for both the households and the industries.

International agencies estimates infrastructure repair in Syria would need hundreds of billions of dollars while Damascus insists that the process would need urgent support from other governments and organizations.
