Qatar sees no need to re-open embassy in Syria - foreign minister

Qatar's foreign minister said on Monday that he saw no need to re-open an embassy in Damascus and that he saw no encouraging signs for a normalisation of ties with the Syrian government.

Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani also said Qatar still objects to Arab league membership for Syria. Syria's membership of the Arab League was suspended in 2011.

Some Arab states, including some that once backed rebels against President Bashar al-Assad, are seeking to reconcile with him after decisive gains by his forces in the war. (Reporting by Eric Knecht Writing by Lisa Barrington Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky)
