` Syria Expels Jordan’s Top Diplomat in Tit-For-Tat Move ‘

#AceWorldNews – DAMASCUS – May 26 – Syria declared Jordan’s charge d’affaires in Damascus persona non grata, Reuters said.

The move was taken in response to what Damascus said was an unjustified decision by the kingdom to expel its ambassador.

Earlier in the day, Jordan gave Syrian Ambassador Bahjat Suleiman, a former general and intelligence chief, 24 hours to leave the country.

The envoy was accused of having made repeated public criticisms of the kingdom.
