BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 A.M.) – In the course of 24 hours, two Arab nations have announced their intention to reopen their embassies in Syria after a seven year hiatus.
According to a government source in Damascus, Kuwait will reopen their embassy in Syria in the next 10-14 days.
Kuwait’s decision comes shortly after Bahrain announced that they were reopening their embassy in Damascus after closing it more than seven years ago.
On Thursday afternoon, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) reopened their embassy during a brief ceremony that was held in Damascus.
The Syrian government is now working to restore diplomatic ties with the remaining Arab states that suspended their ties with Damascus.
