MOSCOW (Reuters) -- Russia is setting up a direct shipping line to Syria and wants its companies to help build an economic recovery in the war-torn Middle Eastern country, the TASS news agency quoted Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin as saying Tuesday.
"A direct shipping line between Russian and Syrian ports is being established," Rogozin, in charge of the military industrial complex, told a meeting of a Russian-Syrian commission on trade cooperation, according to the agency. Agricultural goods are currently transported by a company called Oboronlogistika, which is "interested in expanding its services," he said.
