Russia Set to REBUILD Syria, Signs $950 Million Contract with Damascus

21st Century Wire says…

Things are finally looking up for the war-torn nation of Syria.

Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi has announced that Russia is set to rebuild war-torn Syria after signing numerous contracts with the country after the conclusion of their successful anti-terror air campaign.

The Syrian PM said:

“The Russian side has responded to the idea of restoring [Syrian] infrastructure. Therefore, a lot of deals were signed, including $675 million and $280 million agreements,”

“Despite all the things Syria has undergone, it has managed to maintain the infrastructure. However, the production of electricity depends on fuel, and the oil sector has been more affected by terrorism than the electricity sector,”

“Syria has geographical advantages, making it capable of becoming a developed commercial and industrial center for Russian companies in Middle East markets.”

The move by Russia to rebuild Syria is markedly different to how the West reacts in a post-intervention state. After turning Libya into a failed state with a ‘humanitarian intervention‘, the West is proposing to invade, not rebuild, the crumbling nation.

The deal most definitely marks a turning point for Syria, a nation that had only been concerned with eradicating terrorism up until this point.

While the conflict is by no means completely over, certain areas of the country can at last look forward to returning to normality – something that has been absent in Syria for the past five years.
