Putrajaya recalls Malaysians in Syria


In light with the unrest in Syria, the Malaysian government has decided to recall all of its citizens home.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said that the move is a precautionary measure as the situation in Syria is currently highly unstable and dangerous.  He also said that the decision was made after consultation with the Malaysia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry.

Putrajaya also confirmed that the Malaysian embassy in Syria will be closed down due to the civil unrest happening, and that those planning to visit Syria are strongly advised to postpone their intentions.
