Saudi foreign ministry denies reopening Damascus embassy: state TV

RIYADH (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia on Monday denied media reports that it was reopening its embassy in Damascus amid attempts by some Arab states, including ones that once backed rebels against President Bashar al-Assad, to reconcile with him.

A source at the Saudi foreign ministry denied comments attributed to Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Assaf as completely untrue, according to a statement.
