Gulf states to close embassies in Syria

Gulf states to close embassies in Syria(Riyadh) – All six Arab Gulf states will close their embassies in Syria to protest year-long crackdown in the country, said Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) head Abdullatif al-Zayani.
Zayani asked the international community to “act urgently and decisively to stop the killings and massacres in Syria as well as the gross violations of the dignity and legitimate rights of the Syrians.”
Before this collective decision, two GCC countries Saudi Arabia and Bahrain announced the closure of their missions in Damascus. The other five partner states in the council have done the same to denounce the “mass slaughter” committed by the regime.
