DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:55 P.M.) – The United Arab Emirates is preparing to re-open its embassy in the Syrian capital after six years of closure.
According to media reports, Abu Dhabi has ordered full maintenance works to its Syrian embassy to be ready for opening within the next two weeks.
The same reports added that other GCC states are considering restoring diplomatic ties with Damascus.
Most countries have closed its embassies and consulates since the uprising – which later turned into a bloody war – swept the country in 2011.
With the exception of Oman, GCC states closed its Syrian embassies in 2012.
