Bahrain to restore diplomatic representation in Lebanon



The Lebanese Foreign Affairs Minister, Abdallah Bou Habib, said on Monday Bahrain would restore full diplomatic representation in the country.

Bou Habib, who disclosed this to journalists in Beirut, said his Bahraini counterpart informed him of the decision during the Arab League summit held recently in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah.

He added that Bahrain would soon have an embassy and full diplomatic staff in Beirut.

The minister said: “I was informed of the Bahraini decision to resume diplomatic representation at the level of Ambassadors with Lebanon.”

“The atmosphere has become open for more cooperation.”

Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and other Gulf countries recalled their diplomats from Lebanon in October 2021.

The Gulf countries recalled the diplomats after the then-Lebanese Information Minister, George Kordahi, criticised the Saudi Arabia-led coalition’s involvement in the Yemen civil war.
