On July 17, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in the Syrian capital Damascus on a pre-planned visit. Yi is the most senior Chinese official to visit Syria since the outbreak of the war in the country in 2011.


The Chinese minister was welcomed in Damascus International Airport by his Syrian counterpart Faisal Mekdad and a delegation of senior officials.

During the visit, Yi will meet with Syria’s top officials, including President Bashar al-Assad who was just sworn in for a fourth term in office.


According to a recent report by Sputnik, the Chinese minister will discuss several economic and diplomatic issues with the Syrian side. Yi’s visit is supposed to launch a “new stage of cooperation” between China and Syria.


Six strategic projects, which were pre-agreed upon, will be launched during the visit. The projects are a part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative.


The landmark visit came following reports of Chinese military support for the Syrian Arab Army. According to some sources, Beijing wants to cooperate with Damascus against Uyghurs terrorists based in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.


China appears to be preparing to boost its support for Damascus to address security concerns and secure its interests in the Middle East.
