Saudi FM arrives in Damascus on official visit

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah arrived in Damascus on Tuesday on an official visit where he met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.


It marks the first visit by a Saudi FM to Syria since 2011.


Prince Faisal was received at Damascus International Airport by Minister of Presidential Affairs Mansour Azzam.


The visit reflects Saudi Arabia’s keenness on reaching a political solution to the Syrian crisis and its fallout in a way that preserves the country’s unity, security, stability and national identity and restores it to its Arab fold.


Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mikdad had visited Saudi Arabia last week.
