FM spox deplores Israel FM visit to Bahrain

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh deplored the Zionist Regime Foreign Minister’s Thursday visit to Bahrain.

Criticizing Bahraini officials’ move to welcome the Israeli regime’s Foreign Minister in Manama, the Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman said that the regime’s presence is the source of tensions and insecurity in the region.

“We condemn any scheme that bolsters Israel’s destructive presence in the region,” Khatibzadeh said in a statement on Friday.

“It is unfortunate that Bahrain’s rulers ignore the Zionist regime’s daily crimes against the oppressed but resilient people of Palestine,” he added.

“This stain will not be erased from the reputation of Bahrain’s rulers. The people of the region will continue to oppose the process of normalization of ties with the Zionist regime,” the Iranian diplomat further said.
