Syria's Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mikdad received his Bahraini counterpart Abdul Latif bin Rashid al-Zayani at the Syrian Foreign Ministry building on Sunday after 13 years.

Iran Press/ West Asia: During this visit, Bahrain's foreign minister will invite Syria's President Bashar al-Assad to attend the Arab League Summit that will be held in Manama, the capital of Bahrain.

This is the first visit of Bahrain's FM to Syria since 2011.

UAE was the first Arab country to reopen its embassy in Damascus after the end of the Syrian crisis.

Since 2011 and after the start of the US-backed ISIS attacks on Syria, the Arab countries cut off their relations with the country and did not allow Syria to attend the Arab League summit.

Supported by the Resistance Axis, led by the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the assistance of Russia, the ISIS terrorist group collapsed in Syria in 2019.

Now, as what Bahrain calls a part of diplomatic change in the Middle East, Bahraini FM is in Syria to repair ties with Damascus. 219
