New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday met Syrian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Walid Al Moualem here for bilateral talks of mutual interest.

“Emphasizing engagement. EAM @SushmaSwaraj meets Syrian Dy PM & FM, Walid Al Moualem for bilateral discussions.” Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

Moualem arrived here on Monday on a four-day official visit and was accompanied by a high level delegation.

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.
