BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:50 A.M.) – The United Kingdom’s Syria representative, Martin Longden, responded to the rumors of reopening the British Embassy via Twitter on Monday.

The British official denied the rumors about reopening the embassy in Damascus while also slamming the Syrian government in his tweet.

“The Asad regime lost its legitimacy due to its atrocities against the Syrian people. We therefore closed the British Embassy in Damascus in 2012. We have no plans to reopen it. End of story,” he tweeted.

Longden has long criticized the Syrian government, often using his social media accounts to attack Damascus.

Rumors regarding the reopening of the British embassy began last week when construction units were seen outside the building in Damascus.

An Al-Masdar field correspondent watched as the construction crews worked in front of the British embassy, leading many to question the project.

It’s the UK and it’s zionist allies that have no legitimacy, to interfere in the business of the democratically elected Syrian government. Your own governments are falling apart because of your neglect of your own people’s problems,but when it comes to the zionists in israhell well everything is put on hold to put them first.What kind of a democracy is that.?
