Bahrain welcomes decision of US in designating individuals affiliated with 'Al Ashtar Brigades' as Global Terrorists
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain welcomes the decision of the United States Department of State in designating individuals affiliated with Al Ashtar Brigades as Specially Designated Global Terrorists. This decision illustrates the United States of America's commitment to encountering terrorism in all its forms, including all those who commit or incite terrorist acts.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers this designation yet another sign of support to the efforts of the Kingdom in achieving peace and security as well as providing an important step toward the eradication of all forms of terrorism in the region
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs commends this positive action and looks forward to a similar response from our international partners.
In this regard, the ministry calls for the adoption of a holistic strategy that addresses security, economic, and ideological aspects of terrorism to eradicate its root causes and to drain the pool of funding resources.
The Ministry affirms its confidence in the depth of the historical alliance with the United States of America and its desire to strengthen these strategic relations in all relevant areas.
