Saudi Kingdom denies Iraqi interference in Bahrain internal affairs

The Saudi Foreign Ministry has affirmed the Kingdom’s stand on “interference in the internal affairs of Bahrain.”

The Saudi Press Agency said on Monday that the Saudi Kingdom aspires for a strong relationship between Bahrain and Iraq, who contribute to regional security and stability.

On Sunday, Bahrain slammed a statement by Iraqi cleric Muqtada Al-Sadr in which he criticized Bahrain and its leadership, according to the Bahraini news agency.

Bahrain said it considered the statement as an “unacceptable insult to the kingdom of Bahrain and its leadership, a blatant interference in the country’s internal affairs, an obvious violation of international law and conventions and an abuse of the nature of relations between Bahrain and Iraq.”

Foreign Minister of Bahrain, Khalid Al-Khalifa slammed Al-Sadr’s comments on Saturday, calling on the Iraqi cleric to focus his concerns in Iraq.

“Instead of putting his finger on the wound in Iraq by directing his words to the Iranian regime that controls his country, he chose the path of safety and addressed his words to Bahrain,” Al-Khalifa said in a Tweet.
