British Embassy reopens in Damascus

After more than a year, the British Embassy has re-opened in Damascus.

It had been closed to visitors because of a security risk, but the country's Ambassador was never withdrawan.

Syrians can now apply for visas in person, instead of submitting their papers to the DHL office in Mezzeh.

The US Ambassador was withdrawn just two days after the Hariri killing, Britain and all other countries kept their representatives in despite American pressure.

More than 200 Palestenians arrived in Syria ,as usual Syria is the only real Arab country.

where are you Sasa? i am concerned.
