Syria joins regional meeting in Amman on agricultural exchange in the Levant – The National

The agriculture ministers of Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria discussed on Sunday removing obstacles to food trade between them at a meeting in Amman, official Jordanian media said.

The meeting was notable for the attendance of Syrian agricultural minister Hasan Qatana. Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon are proponents of regional accommodation with President Bashar Al Assad.

His regime was largely ostracised for its wide use of deadly force against the 2011 revolt against five decades of Assad family rule, and later chemical attacks against civilian areas.
