Bahrain ministry decries Iraqi leaders' statements
During the meeting, Waheed Mubarak Sayyar, Bahrain's undersecretary for Regional and GCC Affairs, told Ahmed Rasheed Al Dalimi that his country rejects any interference regarding its independent judiciary. He asked for an end to those types of remarks made recently by Iraqi Vice President Nouri Al Maliki and a spokesman for the Iraqi Foreign Ministry, calling them a violation of the charters of the Arab League, the United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
He added that such remarks can do damage to relations between the two countries and hamper efforts to improve those ties. The undersecretary also conveyed Bahrain’s support of security and stability for Iraq and its people.
