DHAKA: Iranian and Syrian officials entered into agreements this week on energy and water supply, Iranian news agencies reported.
They signalled continued cooperation between the two countries as the Syrian government battles an uprising within its borders.
A Syrian economic delegation has been touring Iran this week, and signed deals with Iranian officials on electricity exports from Iran to Syria, Fars news agency said on Friday, , reports The Jerusalem Post Saturday.
Iran is a rare ally for Syria, which faces international condemnation over the government’s crackdown on a sixteen-month rebellion that has in recent weeks reached its largest cities.
