During a working visit to Damascus, representatives of the Donetsk People's Republic met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Syria, Faisal al-Mekdad.

Parties exchanged views on issues on the international agenda, paying special attention to the irrelevance of a unipolar world concept that "collective West" countries are trying to defend.

Natalia Nikonorova thanked the Syrian side for respect for the will of Donbass people in the referendums on joining the Russian Federation.

In addition, Ms. Nikonorova expressed special gratitude to Mr. al-Mekdad for the clear and uncompromising position of the Syrian Arab Republic at a recent meeting of the UN General Assembly, where SAR representatives refused to support the resolution condemning referendums in the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhie regions.

The meeting was also attended by the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Syrian Arab Republic Alexandr Efimov and the recently appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Syrian Arab Republic to the Russian Federation Bashar al-Jaafari. The Syrian Foreign Minister personally introduced Mr. al-Jaafari to the delegation from Donetsk, expressing hope for establishing good working contacts.
