New Delhi, Jan. 10 (ANI): Syrian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Walid Al Moualem will arrive here on Monday on a four-day official visit to India.
He will be accompanied by a high level delegation.
During the visit, Moualem will meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for bilateral talks of mutual interest.
The visit assumes significance in view of fresh initiatives taken by the United Nations to bring peace in war-torn Syria, where more than 3 lakh people have been killed in the past four years and seven million have fled to other countries.
European nations have also witnessed a huge influx of Syrian refugees.
Since the Paris terror attack, many Western nations have directly or indirectly established contact with the Syrian government to counter activities of the Islamic State. (ANI)
