Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Miqdad received the credentials of Ahmed Adi Muhammad Al-Razi as the new ambassador of Mauritania to Damascus
The Syrian Foreign Ministry stated that Al-Miqdad “praised the Mauritanian position in support of Syria in its war on terror” and stressed “the necessity of concerting joint efforts and uniting sincere efforts to stand in the face of Western plans aimed at dismantling state entities, especially the countries of our Arab region.”
Al-Miqdad praised the relations between his country and Mauritania, stressing “the necessity of strengthening cooperation and brotherly ties between the two countries, and pushing bilateral relations forward to rise to their best levels.”
The Syrian Foreign Ministry quoted Al-Razi as “his appreciation and respect for the important role that Syria has played in the bilateral relations between the two countries, especially in the field of scientific, student, cultural and economic exchange.”
It is noteworthy that last October, Damascus received the credentials of Omani Ambassador Turki Mahmoud Al-Busaidi, the first ambassador of a Gulf state to Syria since 2011.
Before that, both the UAE and Bahrain had opened their embassies in Damascus without appointing an ambassador to them.
On the twenty-first of last month, a Libyan delegation headed by Abd al-Salam al-Ruqa’i arrived in Damascus to assume the duties of the charge d’affaires of his country’s embassy in Syria “until further notice, and until the national unity government was announced,” according to what Libyan sources told RT at the time.
