RIYADH (Agencies): Saudi Arabia has appointed Faisal Al-Mujfel as its ambassador to Syria, marking the first such appointment since 2012, according to reports from Anadolu Agency and the state news agency SPA.

This significant diplomatic move comes months after Saudi Arabia and Syria resumed their diplomatic relations, which had been severed for over a decade. Saudi Arabia had closed its embassy in Damascus in March 2012, approximately a year after the onset of pro-democracy protests that were suppressed by the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

The appointment of Al-Mujfel follows recent visits between the two nations. Last month, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan visited Syria, just days after a similar visit to the kingdom by his Syrian counterpart, Faisal Mekdad. These developments indicate a warming of relations between the two countries.
