Bahrain: Iran explosives enough to destroy capital

Bahrain’s foreign minister urged Iran to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of other countries

Published: Updated:

Explosives smuggled on boats from Iran seized by authorities in July were enough to destroy the Bahraini capital Manama, state-run media reported the Gulf country’s foreign minister as saying on Thursday.

Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Khalifa urged Iran to refrain from interfering in internal affairs of other countries and said the Islamic republic should stop what he described as “dualism” between its language and actions, the Bahraini News Agency reported.

He also called on Iran to revise its foreign policy.

Bahrain has long accused Iran of interfering in its internal affairs and trying to lure its Shiite population towards Tehran’s ideals.

Saudi Arabia is also fighting the Iran-backed Houthi militia group in Yemen, in an attempt to stem what it describes as Iranian meddling in its backyard.
