Syrian Prime Minister Calls for Arab Economic Summit
Syrian Prime Minister Mohammed Mustapha Miro called Thursday for an Arab economic summit to boost solidarity.
"Economic, commercial and technological dangers are threatening Arab countries and must move us to hold an economic summit to apply decisions taken by the Arab League," Miro told a group of investors assembled in Damascus.
"The Arabs must show solidarity in the economic and commercial fields to bolster their solidarity in the political field," he said.
Miro added that "the Zionist danger that threatens the Arabs is not only political but also economic, commercial and cultural."
Nearly 400 investors are in Damascus to attend a two-day conference on investments in the country. It is the first meeting of its kind since Syria started to open up its economy 10 years ago - DAMASCUS (AFP)
