Sri Lanka to open embassy in Bahrain

Following the proposed closure of European embassies "that serve no purpose", Sri Lanka has announced its latest diplomatic relocation, with a new embassy to open in Manama, Bahrain.

The Bahraini foreign minister, Shaikh Khalid Bin Ahmad Al Khalifa, said: "The embassy in Manama will help foster diplomatic relations and coordination in various areas and will also serve the interests of the Sri Lankan community in Bahrain."
