BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The Saudi U.N. delegate, ‘Abdullah Al-Mouallimi, invited his Syrian counterpart, Dr. Bashar Al-Ja’afari, to a special ceremony held in honor of the Saudi Minister of State, Fahd bin ‘Abdullah Al-Mubarak, Al-Watan reported on Tuesday.

According to the Syria-based publication, Dr. Ja’afari attended the ceremony and discussed future ties with his Saudi counterpart.

In particular, the report said Mouallimi expressed to Dr. Ja’afari that what has happened between the two countries should pass, stressing the importance of their long-standing brotherly relations before the war.

Dr. Ja’afari’s attendance at the ceremony reportedly intrigued several attendees, who also greeted him warmly.

This move by the Saudi delegate comes just a month after Syria was invited to a journalism forum held in Riyadh.

Reports of rapprochement between Riyadh and Damascus have been ongoing for two months now, with some indicating that the Saudi government may eventually reopen their embassy like the UAE did in October.

Saudi Arabia cutoff diplomatic ties with Syria in 2012 after they accused Damascus of using excessive force against protesters.

I guess the snakes of SA supposes that Syria should have executed every protester to save them from “cutoff diplomatic ties with Syria in 2012 after they accused Damascus of using excessive force against protesters”. SA and its funding of terrorist through out the world in wahhabi mosques is solely to spread terror and keep the oppressed subjects in their place and neutered as a threat.

In case you didn’t noticed, since MBS rise, Bandar and Turki have been fired, the Muslim Brotherhood has been banned in KSA and the Muslim-Brotherhood insider at the Washington Post, a dude named Kashogi, strangely disappeared, Saudi women can drive and even pilot aircraft, the “religious” police has no more the right to arrest anyone, there are even no-niqab nightclubs opening. KSA has fully stopped to back any extremist group (unlike Qatar, Turkey, Pakistan or Iran).

Just beware of a pair of black AWD with the mop-up team freshly flown from Riyad, apparently still an effective team in spite of being processed for Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in Istanbul.

Well, no offense, but perhaps SA will stop training Wahhabi salafists in their mosques. And do be careful, Mr. Al-Ja-Afari. Mr. Trump is trying to impress his Zionist son-in-law and his Israeli masters.
