Crimea will put together a parliamentary delegation and send the representatives to Syria so as to set up a joint working group, the Russian peninsula’s chief Sergei Aksyonov told reporters on Tuesday following a meeting with Speaker of the People’s Council of Syria Hammouda Sabbagh.

“Crimea’s parliamentary delegation will head to Damascus to build working relations and set up a working group,” Aksyonov said without specifying when the delegates will arrive in Damascus.

“We also invited the Syrian parliamentary delegation to attend the Fifth Yalta International Economic Forum (which will be held in April 2019),” the peninsula’s chief added.

The current Crimean delegation headed by Aksyonov is on a two-day visit to the Syrian capital of Damascus that started on October 15. Andrei Nazarov, co-chairman of the Yalta International Economic Forum, is also a member of the delegation.

On Monday, Crimean envoys held meetings with representatives of the Syrian government, where discussions where held on cultivating economic ties. On Tuesday, the Crimean delegation met with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and Speaker Hammouda Sabbagh. In addition, a meeting with Prime Minister Imad Khamis is also planned.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
