Sheikh Khalifa orders wheat grant for Syria
Sheikh Khalifa's decision – made during a visit by Syrian President Bashar Al Assad – is seen as a token of the ties between the people of the UAE and Syria and is aimed at helping Syrians cope with the rise of wheat prices.
It will be procured from the international markets and directly shipped to Syria.
Sheikh Khalifa and Bashar yesterday discussed co-operation in various fields.
General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, was present at the talks. (Wam)
