Saudi Arabia says it is too early to reopen Syria embassy
Reuters
RIYADH: Saudi Arabia will not reopen its embassy in Syria before progress is made on a political process to end the war, the kingdom's minister of state for foreign affairs said Monday.

"This [reopening the embassy] is related to progress on the political process, so it is still early," Adel al-Jubeir told a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Riyadh.

"Reconstruction cannot happen until the war is over and there is stability and security in Syria," Jubeir said, adding that it was also "too early" for Syria to be reinstated to the Arab League.
