Several European embassies are preparing to reopen in Damascus soon, according to Western diplomatic sources in Syria.
The sources told Al-Watan newspaper that diplomats from Greece, Hungary, and Serbia have already arrived in Damascus, and preparations are underway to restart diplomatic work — except for consular sections, which require a large number of diplomats.
The source added that Italy had recently agreed to accept a Syrian diplomat, who represents the FAO in Rome. The diplomat might soon arrive there to take up his duties.
Yesterday, the Lawyers’ Syndicate signed a lease contract for one of its buildings in Abu Rummana with the Embassy of Cyprus, with the intention to reopen the embassy in Damascus.
