The Ministry of foreign Affairs of France announced that it intends to reopen its Embassy in Damascus. It was a signal that the newly elected President On the Makron will not reconsider its policy towards Syria.
Earlier, Arab media with reference to sources close to the President reported that the Elysee Palace is considering a new approach to the Syrian crisis, including the possibility of resuming the work closed in 2012, of the Embassy.
France and Britain have consistently opposed the rapprochement with the Syrian regime, despite the threat of «Islamic state». Many other EU countries are not so consistent.
Before his election, during a visit to Beirut, macron said that the Embassy will remain closed. Thus, he continued the course of Nicolas Sarkozy and françois Hollande.
