Farmers call to restore Lebanese-Syrian relations so as to access markets

7-7-2020

The National Gathering for Agricultural Committees decided to call on representatives of the sector for a meeting to put an action plan for regulating union movements and ask the government to restore Lebanese-Syrian relations in order to open the borders for made-in-Lebanon agricultural products propping therefore the two neighboring states to be able to face mounting external pressure. This development followed a meeting held by the Gathering end of last week to discuss the exporting of Lebanese farmers’ produce via the Syrian border into Arab countries, according to a statement by the Gathering. The government’s move to pivot towards China and Iraq, is a good one, but it remains incomplete if not supplemented by opening up to neighboring Syria, the statement added. Syria is not only a gate to the East but a key partner for Lebanon, the statement concluded. (Al Diyar, July 5, 2020)
