Bahrain's Ambassador to Egypt Hisham bin Mohammed Al Jowder said that even there is a temporary suspension of work, the embassy continues to take care of urgent matters and to follow up on the affairs of Bahraini citizens in Egypt.

Work was suspended after the embassy building, located in Zamalek, sustained damage from subsidence caused by the ongoing excavation works to extend Cairo's underground metro to run through the area.

Al Jowder, who is also Bahrain's Permanent Representative to the Arab League, praised the great cooperation shown by the concerned authorities in Egypt with regard to the damage.

He lauded the measures they took to ensure the security and safety of the embassy’s diplomats, employees and visiting citizens, which reflected the deep ties between the two brotherly countries. 

The embassy said it has set up hotlines for assistance and inquiry: 01149999566 - 01272442749 – 01112580203.
