Iran condemns Bahraini regime’s attacks on Al-Wefaq headquarters

Tehran, Oct 21, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Friday voiced deep concern about Thursday attacks by Bahraini security forces on the headquarters of Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society in Bilad al-Qadeem.

‘The security and violent approaches adopted by the Bahraini government towards religious leaders and legal and moderate political societies that believe in peaceful political ways is a strategic and historic mistake made by the Bahraini regime,’ Qasemi said.

He stressed, ‘We once again advise Bahraini authorities to put aside security approaches and resort to confidence-building measures to pave the way for interaction and consultations and an all-out serious dialogue (with opposition groups).’
