BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – A Syrian news site alleged on Thursday that Syrian intelligence chief Ali Mamlouk traveled to Turkey in January to meet with his Turkish counterparts.

The news site “Snack Syria” alleged that Mamlouk had met with several Turkish security officials to discuss intelligence matters, despite the absence of diplomatic relations between Damascus and Ankara.

This is not the first time that Mamlouk has reportedly traveled to a foreign country with no diplomatic relations with Syria.

In the past, the Syrian intelligence chief has been reported to have traveled to Italy, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates to meet with their security officials.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed earlier this month that his regime currently remains in contact with Damascucs at a low level.

While Erdogan did not go into details about their communication with Damascus, it was assumed that the Syrian government and Ankara trade intelligence information.
