Bahrain Affirms Readiness To Work for Peace and Stability in the Middle East

The Kingdom of Bahrain has strongly expressed readiness to work with the world countries and “brotherly and friendly” countries in the region for peace and stability in the Middle East.

Bahrain Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Jamal Faris Al-Ruwaiei in his briefing to the UN Security Council on the Middle East situation, said that the Kingdom supports dialogue, peaceful coexistence, and tolerance in the region.

“We can’t ignore the current challenges,” Al-Ruwaiei said, calling for joint efforts to combat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and also necessary to stop its financing.

Al-Ruwaiei also reiterated Bahrain’s firm support for the Palestinian people and called upon the international community to intervene in order to calm the situation there.

“We have to open serious aspects for a comprehensive peace process based on the principle of the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative,” Al-Ruwaiei demanded.

Al-Ruwaiei also affirmed the Kingdom’s full support for the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council and called the UN-brokered truce between warring parties a welcoming step.

The Saudi-led coalition and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels agreed on a two-month truce that began in April first after six years of intensive war.     

The United Nations Special Envoy to Yemen, Hans Grundberg hoped that a truce could lead to a comprehensive political dialogue between the warring parties in Yemeni in order to restore peace and stability in the war-hit country.
