Syria joins the International Solar Alliance

Damascus, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian government signed on Wednesday the framework agreement to join the International Solar Energy Alliance.

The document was signed by the Foreign Minister, Faisal Al-Mekdad, in a ceremony at the Foreign Ministry headquarters in this nation and was attended by the Indian ambassador, Mahindar Single Kanial.

The Foreign Minister told reporters about the huge losses suffered by the energy sector in Syria as a result of terrorism and occupation, especially in power plants and power grid infrastructure.

We hope that joining this Alliance will open the door to new joint projects that will contribute to solving the problems in the electricity sector, the head of diplomacy said.

Syria revealed that the oil and electricity sectors lost about US$195 billion since 2011 as a result of the war.

To address the difficult electricity situation, Syrian authorities recently announced that at least 73 alternative energy projects came into operation, while others are under implementation in different provinces.
