Saudi Arabia has endorsed Syrian unity and integrity, condemned terrorism, and backed a political solution to the 12-year war. Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad has completed a breakthrough visit to Saudi Arabia, the first such trip since Riyadh cut diplomatic relations with Damascus in 2012. The two foreign ministers agreed on the need to address humanitarian issues, establish conditions for the return of refugees and displaced people, and stabilize the situation in the entire Syrian territories. They also committed to enhancing security and combating terrorism in all its forms, and agreed on the need to support the institutions of the Syrian state to extend its control over its territories. Damascus and Riyadh have begun the procedures needed to resume air travel and consular services between the two countries, while Syria thanked Saudi Arabia for the humanitarian aid provided after the catastrophic earthquakes in February.

Saudi Arabia previously backed regime change in Damascus, but now endorses the nation’s unity.
