Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that a US decision to close its Washington embassy and two consulates was illegal and arbitrary.It came a day after the United States announced it was closing Syria's Washington embassy and consulates in Michigan and Texas and expelling remaining diplomatic staff who were not US citizens.The Syrian embassy in the US capital had been operating for some time without an ambassador, who left the US in December 2011, leaving only a few low level staff who had been providing limited consular services.
