Russia will spend 850 million euro on rebuilding Syria


As the Prime Minister of Syria Wael al-Halqi said in his interview with RIA Novosti, Syria and Russia signed an agreement on the restoration of infrastructure in Syria in the amount of 850 million euro.

“The Russian side responded to the idea of ​​infrastructure repair, so many deals were signed with the Russian side, and there are agreements on the amount of 600 million euro, and 250 million euro among them,” – he said.

According to the Syrian prime minister, “more than 60% of the stations are not working and need fuel to start operating”. “However, despite what Syria has suffered, it managed to keep infrastructure. The network that connects the north – from Kamishli – and the south – to Daraa, was preserved. Electricity is still served. However, the production of electricity depends on fuel, and the oil sector suffered from terrorism even more than the power sector,” – said al-Halqi.

He added that Syria needs 35 thousand tons of oil daily to produce electricity.

“Currently, we distill this amount to use it 24 hours a day for a month, so the process is not interrupted,” – he said.
