Turkey - SMART

On Tuesday, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied the claims circulated by some media outlets about reopening its embassy in Damascus, Syria.

A statement published on the ministry website said that the claims are entirely untrue.

The United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Bahrain reopened their embassies in Damascus after they have been closed for seven years. 

The Sudanese President also visited Damascus, and the Syrian government Head of National Security Bureau, Ali Mamlouk, visited Egypt.

The Assistant Secretary General of the Arab League Hossam Zaki said that the Arab League's attitude toward Syria's membership renewal in the league remains unchanged, adding that the Sudanese president's visit to Damascus was not in coordination with the Arab League.

In November 2011 the Arab foreign ministers decided in Cairo to suspend the participation of the Syrian delegations in the meetings of the Arab League and all the organizations and bodies affiliated with it.
