The UAE has offered Syria its experience and expertise in combating desertification and the country's efforts to meet the increasing agriculture and water demands to strengthen the basic infrastructure of the agriculture sector.

This came during a meeting between Dr Salim Al Dhahiri, director general of the Federal Environmental Agency (FEA) and Adnan Khuzam, Syrian minister of state for environmental affairs, in Damascus yesterday.

Al Dhahiri, who is in Syria to attend the fifth regional meeting of the international anti-desertification agreement, which opened on Monday, said UAE's participation in the meeting is based on its deep commitment and solidarity with any regional and international effort to improve human life.

Khuzam expressed appreciation of the UAE's experience, strategy and national planning and commended the its applied scientific programmes and standards which have successfully transformed the UAE desert to green vegetation.

Two days ago, the UAE delegation at the meeting presented a working paper giving details of the steps the country had taken to increase the size of its arable land and to expand in the construction of dams to trap and store rain water. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
