As­sad ap­pears on Syr­ian cur­rency for first time

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Pres­i­dent Bashar Al-As­sad has ap­peared on the Syr­ian cur­rency for the first time, his por­trait printed on a new 2,000-pound ban­knote that went into cir­cu­la­tion yesterday. Cen­tral bank gover­nor Du­raid Durgham said the 2,000-pound note was one of sev­eral new notes printed years ago but the de­ci­sion to put it into cir­cu­la­tion was de­layed “due to the cir­cum­stances of the war and ex­change rate fluc­tu­a­tions”.
