“A number of countries have shown interest to be part of the rebuilding process in Syria, but we prioritize Russia and Iran to help Syria in the reconstruction era,” al-Mouallem said.
Other countries include China, India, Malaysia, Brazil and South Africa.
Regarding the peace talks, he underlined the importance of Astana process since it is totally different from Geneva talks in terms of its track and prospects and has contributed to de-escalating tension in various Syrian areas and reaching agreements on some other areas, the last of which is Idlib.
His remarks came after Syrian Prime Minister Imad Khamis stated that the Northwestern province of Idlib, the last major stronghold of the terrorists in the Arab country, would be soon under government control, pledging to win any possible war there.
“Idlib will soon be restored to the nation,” Khamis said on Thursday as a large-scale liberation operation against remaining terrorists in the province draws closer, adding that “Syria has prevailed and will win in any coming war”.
With the help of Iran, Russia and Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, the Syrian army is preparing for the Idlib operation, a strategically-important region which shares a border with Turkey and is also close to the coastal Lattakia Province.
