The United States Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook said on Wednesday that Bahrain will host 65 countries in the coming weeks to ensure freedom of navigation.

The US had announced last week that it hopes to enlist allies in a military coalition to safeguard strategic waters off Iran and Yemen, where Washington blames Iran and Iran-aligned fighters for attacks, top US general Joseph Dunford said.
