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.
