DUBAI (Reuters) - Bahrain's embassy in Damascus and the Syrian diplomatic mission in Manama have been operating "without interruption", the Bahraini foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday, a day after the United Arab Emirates reopened its embassy in Syria.

The reopening of the UAE's mission was a diplomatic boost for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as it and other U.S.-allied Arab states had once backed rebels fighting him. The embassy had been shut since the early months of Syria's conflict nearly eight years ago.
