BEIRUT, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Bahrain will soon have an embassy and full diplomatic staff in Lebanon's capital Beirut, said Lebanese Foreign Minister Abdallah Bou Habib on Monday.

"I was informed of the Bahraini decision to resume diplomatic representation at the level of ambassadors with Lebanon," Bou Habib was quoted as saying in the local newspaper Al Joumhouria.

Bou Habib said his Bahraini counterpart informed him of the decision during the Arab League summit held recently in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah.

"The atmosphere has become open for more cooperation," Bou Habib said.

Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and other Gulf countries recalled their diplomats from Lebanon in October 2021 after the then-Lebanese information minister, George Kordahi, criticized the Saudi Arabia-led coalition's involvement in the civil war of Yemen.
