On November 20, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba had a meeting with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Syrian Arab Republic in the Russian Federation Riad Haddad.
The Head of State greeted the guest.
“I am happy to welcome you in Abkhazia. As you know, we have visited the Syrian Arab Republic. A number of important documents have been signed which aim to develop political and economic relations with Syria.
As we have said at the meeting with President Bashar al-Assad, we are grateful to the Syrian leadership for the brave decision to recognise Abkhazia. Our main task today is to continue what was planned during those meetings.
We have witnessed the heroic fight of the Syrian Republic and its people. We have seen the destruction, but also the readiness of the people to heal the wounds as fast as possible, to build their state and develop relations with the outside world.
We convey the most cordial greetings to President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian people who welcomed us with such hospitality”, - said the President.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Syrian Arab Republic in the Russian Federation Riad Haddad thanked the President for the invitation.
“I have come to you to convey the greetings of our state’s leader, His Excellency Bashar al-Assad. Your visit left wonderful impressions in the hearts of our leadership and the people. The Syrian leaders always say that we support the people of Abkhazia. A clear proof of this is our sincere and friendly relations, and also the agreements that we have signed during your visit. Our work in the Embassy consists of continuous strengthening of relations between the two nations and leaders.
I was happy to visit the artisan exhibition here. This is clear evidence that we are on the right path. Thank you for this meeting and for your visit. I wish prosperity and development to your country”.
