Cuban Parliament President Ricardo Alarcon de Quesada on Wednesday congratulated his Syrian peer Mohammed Yihad Al-Laham for his election. Al-Laham became the head of the Syrian Peoples’ Assembly after May 7 elections.
A letter by the president of the Cuban National Peoples’ Power Assembly (Congress) expresses the wish to strengthen the work of both legislative bodies.
The document says that the parliamentary groups of friendship, created by both Assemblies, can play an important role.
Al-Laham became the head of the Syrian Peoples’ Assembly after May 7 elections, in which a new body was elected as part of the reform process introduced by the government of President Bashar Al-Assad.
