Bahrain, Israel defence ministers hold first phone call

UAE, Bahraini Foreign Ministers arrive in US to sign peace deals with Israel

Bahraini Interior Minister Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa says that normalising relations with Israel will protect his country's interests.

"We adhere to the constants of the Bahraini people regarding the just Palestinian cause and the provisions of the constitution that criminalize normalisation with the Zionist entity, in accordance with the official and popular Arab and Islamic consensus rejecting normalisation with this criminal entity", said the groups. "The regional situation makes us deal with ongoing threats for the past years, in which majority were deterred".

"We are a state that is determined to develop our national capabilities, and our old and modern strategy is based on strong allies to confront potential threats", he said.

Palestinians step on posters depicting US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and King Hamad al-Khalifa of Bahrain in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah on June 25, 2019, during a protest against the US-led Peace to Prosperity conference in Bahrain.
