Killer of its own people Pakistani regime withdraws embassy staff from Syria

Pakistan has withdrawn its diplomatic staff from Syria, officials in Islamabad said Thursday. “We have temporarily withdrawn our diplomatic staff, including the ambassador, from Syria and they have all returned home,” foreign ministry spokesman Moazzam Ahmed Khan told AFP. Pakistan’s three to four embassy staff and its ambassador were evacuated because of the “deteriorating security situation,” the spokesman said. The embassy was not closed, and Khan said staff will return “once the situation returns to normal.”
