Iran PressMiddle East: Hasan Shakhsi voiced the committee’s readiness to improve agricultural cooperation with Syria after developing the appropriate technical formulas and consensus on the working mechanism.

For his part, Mohammad Hassan Qatana said that the imposed war on Syria and the climate changes have decreased the planted areas of some crops, stressing the need to import production equipment such as fertilizers, fodders, and power supplies, in addition to modern agricultural machines.

He described cooperation with Iran as important to secure these needs.

"It is important to develop cooperation in the field of livestock, agricultural mechanization, and glass greenhouses, and benefit from Iranian experiences in these fields," Qatana added.
