|Foreign forces impeding restoration of peace in Bahrain, Iran says||
TEHRAN – The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman has called on the Bahraini government to end the presence of foreign forces in the country, describing that as an impediment to the restoration of peace in the tiny island.
Ramin Mehmanparast made the remarks during his weekly press briefing on August 30.
Mehmanparast said, “The Islamic Republic of Iran once again expresses concern over the continued presence of foreign forces in Bahrain and the non-fulfillment of the legitimate public demands, which have been expressed through peaceful means.”
Iran also “calls on the Bahraini government to take the people’s legitimate demands into consideration through taking responsible measures and organizing effective and true negotiations and to end the presence of foreign forces in this country, which has complicated matters further, and to set things right through working out wise and fair solutions,” he added.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Mehmanparast condemned the recent terrorist attack in Algeria and commiserated with the Algerian government and the families of the victims.
According to Reuters, eighteen people were killed when two suicide bombers targeted military barracks in the Algerian town of Cherchell on August 26.
Mehmanparast called on all countries to pool their efforts to combat the scourge of terrorism.
