Syrian Friendship Association



September 2nd 2017

Dear friends of Syria and the Syrian people, we have some great news to share with you.

“SYRIAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION” will, starting from September 2017, be part and one of the main components of the newly formed:

“MENA (Middle East - North Africa) HOUSE CONSULTANCY”

This is the result of a consolidation of all our analytical work into a single structure to create a more efficient workflow.

MENA (Middle East - North Africa) HOUSE CONSULTANCY is an independent research and intelligence center focusing on political analysis and media guiding strategies. MENA HOUSE CONSULTANCY, under which the “SYRIAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION” carried and will continue to carry out its activities in the future, has more than 15 years experience in the Middle East.

Ever evolving geo-political circumstances made us over the last couple of years consolidate our activities into a single entity under the brand of “MENA HOUSE CONSULTANCY”. Historically, our focus has always been and will always be analysis and research of the political- and media-landscape of the Syrian Arab Republic and the Islamic Republic of Iran as well as close examinations of intra Syrian - Iranian relations. Notwithstanding the fact that this will remain our core focus, we realize ourselves too that, beside the given that both the the Syrian Arab Republic and the Islamic Republic of Iran are historical allies since the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979, both countries also have their own distinctive interests, viewpoints and policies resulting in a broad range of bilateral agreements of both countries with partners from around the world. Both countries, the Syrian Arab Republic and the Islamic Republic of Iran, are no isolated islands but are part of the MENA (Middle East - North Africa) region and member states of different international organizations, institutions and political and economical organs. Adapting to this model, our new strategy resulted in MENA HOUSE CONSULTANCY becoming much more than an expert consultant in its two focus countries. We transformed our proven knowledge and competence gathering methods into an even more comprehensive and integrated systematic approach.
