Saudi Arabia is renovating its embassy building in the Syrian capital, Damascus, amid rumors of a near reopening, the RT TV reported on December 7.

A senior unnamed source in Damascus told the Russian news channel that the reopening of the Kingdom’s embassy is “a matter of time,” claiming that final preparations are underway.

“This is not the first time that there has been talk of a “near return” of the relations between the two countries [Syria and Saudi Arabia], but a number of current indications confirm this,” RT quoted the source as saying.

Like most Arab states, Saudi Arabia cut its ties with Syria and closed its embassy in Damascus following the failure of the Arab League’s political initiative in 2012.

Last year, the UAE and Bahrain became the first two Arab states to restore relations with Damascus, reopening their embassies in the Syrian capital on December 27 and 28.

Many previous reports claimed that Saudi Arabia is close to reopen its embassy in Damascus. However, the Kingdom denied all of these claims. This time, Riyadh is yet to deny RT’s report.
