UK Renovating Embassy in Damascus, Reopening Likely

The British government is reportedly renovating its embassy building in Damascus as the likelihood of reopening the UK diplomatic mission in the Syrian capital is quite high, media sources reported.

The Arabic-language Rai al-Youm quoted informed sources as saying that the renovation process of the UK embassy in Damascus has begun on Thursday.

The sources pointed to the presence of an interior renovation team in Damascus, and said that the embassy is preparing for reopening in the near future.

In a relevant development in late December, as Arab states had rushed to resume ties with Damascus, former Britain's Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford said "Washington is not powerful enough to block restoration of Arab states' diplomatic relations" with Syria.
