Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad discussed on Wednesday with Vice-Chairman of the Czech Parliament Vojtech Filip and Chairman of the External Committee at the Parliament Carl Schwarzenberg the latest developments in Syria and the efforts exerted by the Syrian leadership in combating terrorism and realizing a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
Mikdad affirmed in a statement following the two meetings that the talks were very important as both Czech officials reiterated their country’s stance that supports Syria and condemns terrorism, hoping Syria would soon overcome terrorism and return to practice its basic role in the region.
Filip, for his part, described Mikdad’s visit to Prague as important as it comes at a time when the Syrian people elected their representatives through successful parliamentary elections.
He said that the Czech Foreign Ministry will send to planes loaded with medicines to Syria.
Meanwhile, Schwarzenberg appreciated Mikdad’s visit to Czech, hoping relations between the European Union and Syria would be settled soon and more progress would be realized in relations between Syria and Czech.
Mikdad’s visit to the European country lasts until Friday to hold talks with Czech political and economic officials.
