Iran Expresses Concern over Developments in Bahrain


The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned the charge d'affaires of Bahrain in Tehran, Thursday, to express its concern about developments in the country. During the meeting, the chairman of the Persian Gulf Affairs Division of the ministry said that the only way to end the crisis in Bahrain is to respond to public demands.

Bahraini citizens began calling for political reforms through demonstrations in mid-February 2011. Later the demonstrators called for overthrowing the royal family in Bahrain, following the violent measures taken against the demonstrators.
