BEIRUT, June 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Syria hopes to normalize bilateral relations with Western countries, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
Damascus thinks that diplomacy is an important means of communication bound to assist the settlement of conflicts and problems, the ministry said. It also confirmed the Syrian adherence to the dialog with other states on the principles of equality and mutual respect.
The statement was posted in connection with the Syrian authorities’ decision to declare persona non grata 18 ambassadors and charge d’affaires of European countries, the United States, Canada and Turkey. The demarche followed the expulsion of Syrian diplomats from European capital cities last week.
