Bahrain appointed its first ambassador to Damascus on Thursday since a decade. The appointment of Waheed Mubarak Sayyar was reported by Bahrain's state news agency BNA.

Bahrain has said its embassy, and the Syrian diplomatic mission in Manama, have remained operational.

Last month, the United Arab Emirates, which re-opened its mission to Damascus in late 2018, sent its foreign minister to Damascus where he met Assad. It has called for Syria to be readmitted to the Arab League. 

Oman last year became the first Gulf state to reinstate an ambassador to Syria.
