FCO spokesperson on meeting between Syrian Ambassador Dr Sami Khiyami and FCO Middle East Director Christian Turner.
An FCO Spokesperson said:
“On 28 June, Syrian Ambassador Dr Sami Khiyami was invited in to see the FCO Middle East Director Christian Turner. Mr Turner made clear our strong concerns about the media allegations that a diplomat at the Syrian Embassy has been intimidating Syrians in Britain. Any such activity would amount to a clear breach of acceptable behaviour. If such claims were substantiated, the Foreign Office would respond swiftly and appropriately.”
