All border-stations between the Syrian Arab Republic and Lebanon have now been re-opened.

On 15 October the border stations of the Syria region of Quneitra with Golan, which is occupied by Israel, was reopened. So too were reopened the border stations of Nassib/Jaber with Jordan.

The Iraqi Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ibrahim Jaafari, came to make preparations for reopening the border-station of Boukamal between Syria and his country.

The reopening of Syria’s border stations with its neighbours (except Turkey) marks the end of the international hostilities against Syria. It should also contribute to bypassing the “sanctions” – that is to say – to putting an end to the economic war — and re-establishing trade in the region.
