    DAMASCUS, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Croatian President Stepan Mesic arrived in Damascus on Sunday evening on an official visit to Syria at the invitation from his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad, the official SANA news agency reported.

    During his stay, Mesic would hold talks with Syrian officials on bilateral relations, the economic ties in particular, between the two counties, in addition to the situation in the Middle East and the world.

    Trade exchanges are active between the two countries, which have signed a convention on prevention of double taxation, as Syria exports to Croatia foodstuffs, vegetables, cotton materials and imports from it chemical materials, oil and gas equipment, and sea products.

    Croatia was elected as non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the years 2008 and 2009.
