Bahrain's minister of foreign affairs visits U.K.
Al Khalifa stated his country’s belief that much progress is being made in all areas of cooperation.
The speech was made at an annual dinner hosted by the Bahrain-British Friendship Society. Al Khalifa praised historical relations between the two nations: they have collaborated for more than 200 years. Through these two centuries, there has been important growth in political, economic and military matters.
Tobias Ellwood, the British undersecretary of state for Middle East affairs, expressed the U.K.'s belief at the event that the strength and diversity of the distinct ties between the U.K. and the kingdom of Bahrain will help continue the progress made.
Al Khalifa noted that he looks forward to meeting with Theresa May, prime minister of the U.K., in December.
