Russian-Syrian talks will be held over coming two days and a joint commission will be set up to complete the technical proceedings to produce the Russian vaccine in Syria, Mr. Sabagh said.

He specified that the production date depends on the delivery time of technical equipment, adding that the production process was initially passed to be rolled out at the state-owned company Tamico, close to Damascus.
