ZEAITER DECLARES MEETING WITH HIS SYRIAN COUNTERPART SOON TO ACTIVATE AGREEMENTS, OPEN BORDERS

Agriculture Minister, Ghazi Zeaiter, announced Monday that he will be meeting with his Syrian counterpart in the near future, in order to activate bilateral agreements and re-open the borders between Lebanon and Syria.

Speaking before popular delegations who visited him in Baalbek this morning, Zeaiter indicated that the coordination and cooperation agreement between both countries has yielded positive outcome at the agricultural level, especially in regards to exporting Lebanese agricultural products to Syria, which provides a main gateway to the Arab world.

Over smuggling operations, Zeaiter considered that this affects all sectors and not just the agricultural field, adding “this matter calls for firm measures in controlling the borders, which requires serious follow-up.”
