#Syria loyalist websites& fb pages claimed the new government will be announced tomorrow, notably FM Moualem will be replaced by Bassam Sabbagh the Syrian ambassador at OPCW, Janset Kazan to be new Minister of Social Affairs and Labour. In addition to other changes Moualem has been sick for some time and went into a coma last year, it would be interesting if Sabbagh not Jaafari nor Maqdad who are more famous and spent more time in MoF than him.
