Saudi Minister: It Is Still Early to Reopen Syria Embassy

Saudi Arabia's minister of state for foreign affairs said on Monday that his country will not reopen its embassy in Syria before a political progress is reached to end the war there.

"The reopening of the embassy depends on the progress of the political process, so it is still early," Adel Jubeir told a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Riyadh.

"Reconstruction cannot start in Syria until the war is over, and stability and security are restored," he added, noting that it was also "too early" for Syria to be re-admitted into the Arab League.
