Bahrain Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa speaks at the UN General Assembly.

“Iran is threatening security in the straits of Hormuz and Bab el-Mandeb,” the Bahraini foreign minister told the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday, adding that “the Iranian regime supports Yemen’s Houthi militias in threatening neighboring countries”.

Bahrain Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa told the UN that the regime in Iran is adopting a policy of sabotage and supporting terrorism in the region and that achieving lasting security requires a strategic alliance between the countries of the region.

In a related context, the Bahraini foreign minister called on Iran “to stop interfering in the internal affairs of Iraq” while stressing Bahrain’s support for “the efforts to restore Syria to its entire territory and expel the Iranian militias from them”, reiterating the need to reach a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
