BRUSSELS — Belgium said today that it is recalling its ambassador in Damascus for consultations, becoming the first Common Market nation to take such action since Britain broke relations with Syria.

Patrick Van Houte, a spokesman in the Foreign Affairs Ministry, said Ambassador Andre Verbiest will return to Brussels by Thursday to consult with government officials on a possible joint Common Market response to British charges of Syrian involvement in terrorism.
