Bahrain has announced that work is continuing at its embassy in Syria and that flights have also continued without any interruption between the two countries.
A statement released on the Bahrain News Agency said the ministry “stressed Bahrain’s keenness on continuing relations with the Arab Republic of Syria, underscoring the importance of consolidating the Arab role so as to maintain Syrian independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity”.
“It also underlined the importance of activating the pan-Arab role to prevent any regional interference in its internal affairs, which would consolidate security and stability in Syria and achieve the Syrian people’s ambitions for peace, development and progress,” said the statement.
Bahrain’s foreign minister, Khalid bin Ahmed, said that Syria is a major Arab country in the region in a tweet on Friday.
The tweet added: “We haven’t cut off Syria and it hasn’t cut us off, despite the tough situation.”
The FM said that his country stands with Syria to protect its sovereignty and land from any violation.
“We stand with this country to bring back its stability and achieve security and prosperity to its brotherly people,” the minister tweeted.
The announcement came one day after the United Arab Emirates reopened its embassy in Damascus.
