Turkey not yet ready to permit Syrian opposition to create an embassy

Turkey is not yet ready to allow an embassy to be opened in Ankara by the Syrian opposition coalition, which recently opened an embassy in Qatar.

The Syrian opposition opened its first embassy in Qatar a day after opponents of embattled President Bashar al-Assad were given Damascus’s seat at the Arab League during a summit that took place in late March.

The coalition has named ambassadors in several countries, including Britain, France, Libya and Qatar.

Although the coalition has an embassy building in Qatar, it has yet to open diplomatic missions in countries in which it has ambassadors such as Britain, France and Libya. The embassy in Qatar was inaugurated while the original Syrian Embassy in Doha remains closed.
