Makhlouf: Rehabilitating infrastructure is underway in areas liberated from terrorism

Damascus, SANA- Local Administration and Environment Minister Hussein Makhlouf said that the reconstruction committee is implementing a number of projects to rehabilitate infrastructure, especially in the areas that have been liberated from terrorism.

The minister was speaking during a committee meeting held on Monday to discuss measures taken to facilitate return of the displaced Syrians abroad.

Makhlouf who heads the Syrian side of the Syrian-Russian Joint committee for displaced Syrians clarified that re-opening Nassib border crossing with Jordan will encourage the displaced Syrians to return home.

For his part, Chief of Russian National Defense Control Center (NDCC) Lt. General Mikhail Mizintsev affirmed in a speech via videoconference that the available data indicate an organized and voluntary return of displaced Syrians to their country, adding that the UN Commissioner and international humanitarian organizations expressed their readiness to help the displaced, hailing the amnesty decree no.18 for 2018 which yielded positive effects in this regard.

Representatives of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Social Affairs and Labor, Justice, and the National Reconciliation Affairs and the Russian Coordinator for Reconciliation reviewed the procedures adopted to receive the returnees and create the appropriate conditions to ensure their return.
