Syria's charge d'affaires in London has resigned to protest "oppressive acts" by the Syrian regime, the British Foreign office says, according to the BBC.
The Guardian has published this statement from the Foreign Office:
The Syrian chargé d'affaires, Khaled al-Ayoubi, has informed the Foreign and Commonwealth Office today that he has left his post in the Syrian embassy in London.
Ayoubi has told us that he is no longer willing to represent a regime that has committed such violent and oppressive acts against its own people, and is therefore unable to continue in his position. Ayoubi was the most senior Syrian diplomat serving in London. His departure is another blow to the Assad regime. It illustrates the revulsion and despair the regime's actions are provoking amongst Syrians from all walks of life, inside the country and abroad.Al-Ayoubi joined the Syrian diplomatic service in 2001. His first posting was in Greece as consul from 2003 to 2008.disassociate themselves from the crimes being committed against the Syrian people and to support a peaceful and free future for Syria.
The Syrian ambassador was recalled in March. In May, the British government expelled the previous charge d'affaires, Ghassan Dalla, leaving only four diplomats -- including Ayoubi -- at the embassy in London.
The Telegraph reported in May that Dalla was expelled in a coordinated series of expulsions or reprimands by more than a dozen countries, including the United States and Germany, to protest the massacre of civilians in Houla.
Al-Ayoubi joined the Syrian diplomatic service in 2001, the Associated Press notes. His first posting was in Greece as consul from 2003 to 2008.
