UAE Discusses Economic Growth and Investment with Syria amid Foreign Policy Changes

The Index Today

The United Arab Emirates and Syria are in talks about the ways to increase economic and investment cooperation as the Persian Gulf nation seeks to change its foreign policy to serve economic interests.

UAE Economy Minister Abdulla bin Touq Al Marri met Syrian counterpart Mohammed Khalil on the sidelines of the Dubai Expo 2020 trade fair which marks as a rare encounter with a Syrian minister. UAE’s state-run WAM news agency reported Tuesday that the two discussed ways to expand the horizons of the productive and promising partnership between the two countries in the post-Covid 19 era.

According to the previous reports, Syria, backed by the UAE’s regional rival Iran, has been a pariah in the Arab world since the breakout of its civil war a decade ago. The UAE reopened its embassy in Damascus in December 2018.
