Saudi Arabia Agrees to Re-Establish Ties with Syria: Sources

According to a British news outlet, Syria and Saudi Arabia have decided to restore their embassies despite severing diplomatic ties more than ten years ago.

A regional source allied with Damascus claimed that contacts between Riyadh and Damascus had accelerated following a historic deal to restore ties between Saudi Arabia and Iran, a significant ally of President Bashar al-Assad.

The most significant advancement in Arab states’ efforts to repair relations with Assad would be the restoration of ties between Riyadh and Damascus.

Assad was shunned by many Western and Arab nations after Syria’s civil conflict started in 2011. According to a local source, the two governments were “getting ready to reopen embassies after Eid al-Fitr,” a Muslim holiday in the second half of April.
