Damascus, SANA –Labor Ministers of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries held the 109th Session of the International Labor Conference (ILC) their meeting, with the participation of Syria.
The conference is organized annually by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and this year will be held virtually in Geneva.
Delivering a speech, head of the Syrian delegation, Minister of Social Affairs and Labor, Dr. Salwa al-Abdullah affirmed the importance of taking clear and frank decisions by ILO in condemnation of Israeli occupation of occupied Syrian Golan, Palestine and other occupied Arab territories and flagrant violations committed by the occupation against civilians, employers and workers in Golan.
“We are looking forward to a strong stance supporting Syria in its war against terrorism,” Abdullah said.
