Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim came to Bahrain on November 8 for the 1st time since assuming the leadership of ISCI, and spent three days of very public interaction with Bahrain's political and religious leadership, including the King, the Speaker of Parliament, chairpersons of the parliamentary committees, Shia religious leaders and the press. The focal point of the visit was an audience with King Hamad and Prime Minister Khalifa on November 9, which was all the more notable in that it took place as scheduled, despite the death the day before of Sheikh Mohamed bin Sultan al Khalifa, the King's uncle and brother of the late Emir.


According to the King Hamad, who met with the Ambassador on November 10 and spoke of his discussions with Sayyid Ammar, Bahrain was eager to show the Arab world that it was embracing Iraq and its political leaders from all communities. The King also made it clear that he wanted Sayyid Amar's help, and that of the Najjaf marja'iyya, to channel the energies of Bahrain's Shia community in positive directions. The King explained to al Hakim his vision of a peaceful, prosperous and empowered citizenry, irrespective of religious or ethnic background, and said that his government was committed to meeting the needs of all, equally and fairly. According to Iraq's Ambassador to Bahrain, King Hamad asked for the help and support of Sayyid Ammar and the Najjaf marja'iyya for this vision. In particular, he said it was important for them to urge the Shia of Bahrain to participate in the democratic process and reject violence. The Iraqi Ambassador added that Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim told King Hamad that Ayatollah Sistani regularly communicates this message to his Bahraini visitors. Sayyid Ammar pointed out that on his part, he tells the Shia of Bahrain they have it a lot better than their other co-religionists in the region.


Turning to Iran, Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim told local journalists that he believed a relationship with Tehran was in Iraq's national interests, and pointed specifically to the two countries' shared border and historical and cultural ties. He stated, "We view Iran as a friendly country... and need to develop relationships with neighboring countries including Iran. We are seeking a balanced relationship with countries in the region and cannot eliminate Iran from the equation."
