In the uprising against the authoritarian regime, more than 450 people have been killed, with 120 dead over the weekend.
Dr. Khiyami said he found the revocation "embarrassing" but not surprising during an interview with BBC radio, The Telegraph reports. "I find it a bit embarrassing but I don't consider it a matter that would jeopardise any ongoing relations and discussions with the British Government."
The inclusion of the Syrian ambassador sparked criticism from human rights activists. The British government explained their original decision, saying that the invite "does not mean endorsement or approval of the behaviour of any government." But on Thursday, they withdrew the invite, stating that it wouldn't be suitable given the current political situation.
"In the light of this week's attacks against civilians by the Syrian security forces, which we have condemned, the Foreign Secretary has decided that the presence of the Syrian Ambassador at the Royal Wedding would be unacceptable and that he should not attend. Buckingham Palace shares the view of the Foreign Office that it is not considered appropriate for the Syrian Ambassador to attend the wedding."
