Bahram Ghassemi, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson
[Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson on Iran’s participation in the reconstruction of Syria.]
Bahram Ghassemi: Certainly, given Iran’s presence in Syria upon its government’s request and its previous presence to fight terrorism and help clean-up Syria, Iran will take part in the reconstruction of this country which is very important. Our advice and plan are for the private sector, industrial, trade and technological companies which are active in the private sector. I do hope that the grounds be prepared as soon as possible, and Iran’s private sector can play its essential and vital role in helping the oppressed people of Syria.
