MANAMA: The Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the continuation of the work of the Embassy of Bahrain in Syria, according to the Bahrain state-news agency BNA.
The Embassy of the Syrian Arab Republic to the Kingdom of Bahrain is also carrying out its work, and the flights between the two countries are uninterrupted.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed the keenness of Bahrain on the continuation of relations with the Syrian Arab Republic and on the importance of enhancing the Arab role and activating it in order to preserve Syria's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity and to prevent the dangers of regional interference in its internal affairs and progress.
The United Arab Emirates has also resumed operations at their Syrian Embassy, and Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir recently became the first Arab leader to visit Syria since the civil war broke out there almost 8 years ago. These recent developments reflect an effort by Gulf Arab states to improve relations with Syrian President Bashar Assad as his forces win a series of military victories with the help of Russia and Iran.
