WASHINGTON, July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain deeply regrets the statement issued by Mr. Boris Johnson, UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, as well as the statement from the US Department of State. Such statements and positions are unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and in the decisions of the Bahraini judicial process, which provides all necessary standards of justice, fairness, transparency and independence. Further, such statements are unjustified and only give encouragement to groups which support extremism and terrorism.
In reaffirming that rights and freedoms are comprehensively guaranteed in the Constitution of the Kingdom of Bahrain, which also safeguards community security and safety, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses the hope that friendly and allied countries take into account the interests of the Kingdom of Bahrain, just as Bahrain is keen to take into account the interests of all allies and partners in order to preserve their distinctive historical relations, and to ensure security and stability in the region.
The Ministry underlined the Kingdom of Bahrain's commitment to working with its allies and partners to promote peace and sustainable development for all.
