US denies closing Syria mission breaks international law

The closed Syrian embassy is pictured in Washington, DC on March 18, 2014The United States Wednesday hit back at Syrian accusations that it was flouting international law by closing down Damascus’s embassy in Washington. The State Department also denied Russian allegations that by shuttering the mission in Washington’s upscale embassy district it was abandoning its role as co-sponsor of the Syrian peace talks. “We are abiding by not only the law but every aspect of the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. The United States on Tuesday said it was ordering Syria to suspend the operations of its embassy in the US capital and two honorary consulates in Michigan and Texas, after the Syrian mission said it would halt all its consular operations.
