Reports say that India and Syria agreed that “terrorism is a global problem”.

“Assad said as a growing power, India has a role to play in meeting the challenge of terrorism,” reports said.

Akbar said the age of destruction should give way to reconstruction in Syria.

Syrian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem during his visit to India seven months ago sought India’s economic and political support.



Despite international opinion on Assad regime, India continues to maintain an objective position on the Syrian civil war. While all western powers have sided with the rebels, Russia, Iran and China side with the Assad regime.

There was an agreement between the two sides on further upgrading security consultations.

Almost half of Syria – the eastern part – first fell into rebel hands and then went under the control of the Islamic State. Russia sided with Assad to bomb the Islamic State positions in Syria.

MoS Akbar will now be visiting war-torn Iraq as part of his three nation tour that started on August 17.
