Netherlands: Syrian ambassador no longer welcome

AMSTERDAM - The Dutch government on Tuesday said the Syrian ambassador was no longer welcome in the Netherlands after a series of deadly attacks on civilians in Syria over the weekend.
"The Netherlands has taken this decision in consultation with European Union partners," the Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a statement.
The Netherlands cannot expel the Syrian ambassador, as several other EU countries have done, because he resides in Brussels from where he represents Syria in both Belgium and the Netherlands.
