Bahrain To Set up Embassy in Philippines

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Tuesday said currently, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Bahrain in Bangkok, Thailand has concurrent jurisdiction over the Philippines.

The DFA last May 31 welcomed the delegation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bahrain headed by Dr Mohamed Ali Bahzad, undersecretary for Consular and Administrative Affairs.

The delegation visited the Philippines “primarily to discuss Bahrain’s ongoing preparations for the establishment of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Bahrain in Manila,” the DFA wrote on Twitter.

On June 1, the Bahraini delegation met with Foreign Service Institute (FSI) officials to discuss possible collaboration on training programs for both Filipino and Bahraini diplomats.

“The Bahraini side sought the furtherance of partnerships and people-to-people exchanges between the FSI and Bahrain’s Mohammed bin Mubarak Al Khalifa Academy for Diplomatic Studies,” the DFA said.

On the same day, the delegation paid a courtesy visit to Foreign Affairs Secretary Enrique Manalo who conveyed his well wishes for Bahrain’s undertaking of setting up its embassy in Manila.

On June 2, the Bahraini delegation met with DFA officials to discuss the requirements, procedures, and other relevant matters for setting up a diplomatic mission in Manila.
