The Bahraini ambassador, Waheed Mubarak Sayar, traveled between several countries, where he spent most of his diplomatic life outside his country, while Syria, to which he will return again, was one of the longest stations in his career.
The decree issued today, Thursday, appointing the Undersecretary of the Bahraini Foreign Ministry for Regional Affairs and the Cooperation Council, Waheed Mubarak Sayyar, as head of his country’s diplomatic mission in Syria, brings him back to Damascus, which he left in 2008, after he represented his country there since 2001.
Sayyar describes Syria as a “corridor of civilizations” and says, through an interview broadcast by the Bahraini Ministry of Information Affairs, that whoever walks in the streets of Damascus feels as if he is walking in the midst of all civilization, and among people who have accumulated a great cultural heritage.
On the most prominent experiences in Syria, he said that among the “important experiences carried out by the Bahraini diplomacy were the days of the Israeli attack on Lebanon in 2006” and talked about how hundreds of Bahrainis were evacuated and transported to their country through Syria.
The most prominent stations in Mubarak Sayar’s career:
Sayyar studied economics at the University of Baghdad in the seventies of the last century.
He joined his country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1975.
– From 1980 until 1986, he joined the Bahrain Embassy in Tunisia as Deputy Permanent Representative of the Kingdom to the League of Arab States.
He was appointed as an advisor at his country’s embassy in Cairo, and as a deputy permanent representative of the League of Arab States, in 1988, and continued until 1996.
– From 1996 to 2001 he held the position of counselor at the Bahraini embassy in London, and was the second person in it.
He was appointed as Bahrain’s ambassador to Syria for eight years, from 2001 to 2008.
From 2011 to 2015, he was the Kingdom’s ambassador to Qatar.
In 2015, he returned to a country where he held the position of Under-Secretary of the Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Regional Affairs and the Cooperation Council.
Today, Thursday, a decree was issued appointing him head of the diplomatic mission of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the Syrian Arab Republic.
It is noteworthy that Bahrain, which followed the example of many countries when it closed its embassy in Damascus in 2012 due to the ongoing crisis in Syria since 2011, announced in December 2018 the “continuation of work” in its embassy in Damascus.
