BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The Saudi regime has denied the recent reports that claimed they were planning to reopen their embassy in Damascus soon.

Saudi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Assaf released a statement on Monday evening that denied these rumors; however, the diplomat did not go into details.

“Referring to what have been circulated by some electronic websites on a statement attributed to Dr. Ibrahim bin Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, Minister of Foreign Affairs, on opening the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s embassy in the Syrian capital, Damascus, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied the claimed statement, affirming that this statement is completely untrue and baseless,” the official media page of the Saudi regime said on Monday.

Earlier in the day, the Qatari Foreign Minister released a statement affirming that his Gulf nation is not interested in restoring ties with Syria.

The Qatari Foreign Minister added that his regime also opposes lifting the suspension on Syria’s membership in the Arab League.

No point. Most of ISIS are dead so won’t be needing a visa to come home. Besides who would want to go there .Chances of coming out in suitcases would not endear many to want to visit .

KSA is actually not opened for tourism except for the Mecca pilgrimage (only Muslims allowed). You don’t go to KSA except with a business visa. ISIS rats from KSA were very few. Saudis dumped their long-term/death-row jailed shithadists into Jaysh al-Islam but finally did cut any funding more or less since MBS is in charge and was strongly advised by MBZ to cut ties with any extremists, so JaI ended being a Qatar+Turkey thing only, at the present day, they apparently shrank to the irrelevance level especially since Alloush resigned and flee, taking all the money with him [sic].

Qatar needs a regime change. The best way would be making it annexed by India since half of people living in Qatar are Indian expats and there are also many Nepaleses and Bangladeshis.
Assad should give the finer to the Arab-League, moreover, Levantines are NOT Arabs, same vallues for Iraq, Egypt and all Maghreb countries… Arab-League has been pretty toxic for them all from the start, why going on?
