Al-Halqi calls on all displaced to come back home from the neighboring countries

Damascus (ST)-Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi renewed calling  on all the displaced citizens in the neighboring countries who were forced to leave their homes due to the terrorist acts to come back home to prevent being exploited.

Chairing the Cabinet's weekly session on Tuesday, al-Halqi stressed that Syria accommodates its entire people and that the government is ready to embrace all the displaced people and ensure decent residential places for them.

Al-Halqi pointed out that the government is incessantly working to control the increase in prices and to ensure services and living prerequisites in all governorates, outlining the measures taken by an ad hoc economic committee to boost the national economy capacities and to preserve stability of the Syrian pound exchange rate.

For his part, Minister of State for National Reconciliation Affairs, Ali Haidar, pointed out  that thousands of displaced Syrians in the neighboring countries have started  returning home, particularly from Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.

The Cabinet approved a draft law to establish the Higher Judicial Institute at the Ministry of Justice and another one to amend Article 205 of Labor Law No. 17 for 2010 pertaining to setting up labor courts in the provinces.

The Cabinet also endorsed a draft law to establish electronic copying offices at the Justice Ministry and all judicial bodies and courts as a step to automating judicial and administrative work and coping with the developed hi-tech procedures.
