The German government will provide 100 million euro for the restoration of Syria and Iraq by the end of current year. These funds will be directed to the stabilization of regions recovered from the terrorist group Islamic State, as reported on Wednesday, October 17, in Berlin by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Economic Cooperation.
90 million euro from this sum will be given to Iraq. The remaining 10 million will go to the Syrian provinces of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor, which are not controlled by the Government in Damascus.
The money will be used to restore basic infrastructure in the affected areas, like water supply systems and sanitation, and also roads and bridges. The main communications infrastructures are prerequisites for the restoration of cities in the long term, German Ministries noted.
