UAE embassy reopens in Damascus after 7 years

The embassy of the United Arab Emirates in the Syrian capital of Damascus reopened yesterday with the UAE flag being raised again, for the first time in more than seven years.

The reopening of embassy marks the first state of the Gulf Cooperation Council to resume diplomatic work in Syria. Abdul-Hakim al-Nuami, the UAE charge d’affaires, was cited by the pro-government Sham FM radio as saying that the return of the UAE embassy is a prelude to the return of other Arab embassies to Syria. The Iraqi and Sudanese ambassadors as well as diplomats from the Tunisian and Algerian embassies showed up at the UAE embassy where an opening ceremony took place inside. All Gulf states had closed their embassies in Damascus after the Syrian crisis erupted in 2011.
