Iran’s FM Dismisses Military Solution to Bahrain Crisis

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi denounced the military suppression of peaceful protestors in Bahrain, and stressed that the problem in Bahrain has no military solution.

“There is no military solution to the Bahrain crisis, continued presence of foreign military forces in the country will further complicate the situation,” Salehi said in a meeting with Kuwaiti Amir Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jabir al-Sabah on Wednesday.

Salehi also criticized the Bahraini regime for its lack of self-restraint in dealing with a nation which has raised its demands through peaceful means and based on its citizenship rights.

He also underlined the necessity for an end to the current militaristic approach in Bahrain and meeting people’s demands through political reforms.

Sheikh Sabah, for his part, praised Salehi for his diplomatic initiative which took him to several regional countries, including Kuwait, to remove misunderstandings and explain the Islamic Republic of Iran’s stance.
