Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan− A delegation from the Syrian Interim Government (in exile), headed by its president Dr. Ahmad Touhme, arrived in Qatar last week to hold talks with Qatari officials on several issues, including the development of the mutual relations.

The meeting revolved around searching for ways to develop bilateral relations between the two governments.

The Interim Government in exile was formed in Nov. 2013 by the Syrian National Coalition −which constitutes the largest umbrella to the Syrian opposition.

The delegation, which included Ibrahim Miro, Minister of Finance and Economy in the Interim Government, focused on the economic strategies of the Syrian Interim government in the liberated areas of Syria.

Miro discussed with Mohammed Rumaihi, Qatar’s Deputy Foreign Minister, the possible development of the cooperation between the Government of Qatar and the Syrian Interim Government in the field of finance and economy.

Miro, in his meeting with Rumaihi, talked about the Interim Government plan for future as well as the achievements reached in the previous period, beside the difficulties and obstacles which constrained efficiency of their work.

Minister Miro also discussed the prospects for developing the work of the Interim Government and its priorities. The interim government draft (project) tackled in the meeting was to purchase wheat for the liberated areas inside Syria.

Ibrahim Miro is the only Kurdish member in the Syrian Interim Government headed by Ahmed Touhme. Miro won the highest percentage of votes (72 out of 101) among the nine ministers elected by the Syrian National Coalition (SNC). Ibrahim Miro holds a master’s degree in General and Partial Economics from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
