UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The United States has officially expressed its opposition to the participation of companies and businessmen in the exhibition “Reconstruction of Syria.”
“The United States never encourages businesses and individuals to participate in the reconstruction of Syria,” the US embassy in Damascus said in a statement late Wednesday. Likely to be routed through the system’s client networks, ultimately benefiting and maintaining the system.”
The US embassy accused the “regime” of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of using “these economic and commercial networks to support the continuation of the conflict in Syria, which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Syrians and the displacement of millions.”
“As with the Damascus International Trade Fair, we will monitor the participation of foreign companies,” the US embassy said.
The activities of the “Reconstruction of Syria” exhibition kicked off on Wednesday, in Damascus, to continue until September 21, with the participation of about 270 companies from 29 Arab and foreign countries, especially from Russia.
