Apr 09, 2013
DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The Cabinet condemned on Tuesday the terrorist bombing which hit al-Sabe’ Bahrat Square and al-Shahbandar area in Damascus.
During a session chaired by Prime Minister, Dr. Wael al-Halqi, the Cabinet noted that this escalation reflects the bankruptcy of the armed terrorist groups after the achievements made by the Syrian Arab Army, adding that targeting the Central Bank is a result of their desperation in wagering on the collapse of the national economy and the Syrian currency.
The Cabinet stressed that such acts will only increase determination to pursue the armed terrorist groups.
The Prime Minister reviewed the activities of the cabinet during the past week and the role of some activities in activating the commercial and development relations with some friendly countries to enhance the capacities of the national economy and providing the needs of citizens.
For his part, Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem, reviewed the political developments in the region and their reflections on Syria, stressing the ability of the Syrian people to face all challenges thanks to the Syrian Army and the determination of the people to make the upcoming national dialogue conference a success.
The Cabinet approved a bill on amending some articles of the legislative decree No 33 for 2005 concerning combating money laundering.
