Bahrain's Cabinet, at an extraordinary meeting, today affirmed its strong resolve to face terrorism firmly by taking the necessary steps to eradicate it from the kingdom.
A Bahrain News Agency report said that the meeting, chaired by His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, stressed that any attempt to justify or support terrorist and violent acts targeting innocent lives and posing a threat to their security, safety, livelihoods and lifestyles will be dealt with resolutely.
During the session, the cabinet urged all state bodies, particularly the security ones, to take the required measures in order to deal with the unprecedented surge in violence appropriately, calling upon all sides to cooperate fully and responsibly with the legal procedures to be taken or any other necessary steps required by the situation.
The cabinet condemned in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist attacks that targeted a number of areas in the kingdom on Monday, leaving two expatriates dead and another critically injured, and offered its condolences to the families of the victims and wishing the wounded speedy recovery.
It expressed its full support for all the measures to be taken by the Interior Ministry and other security bodies in order to reinforce security, promote stability and arrest the perpetrators, stressing that the government will thwart any evil plans aimed at destabilise the kingdom or undermine its national unity.
The government pledged that it will deal with any acts aimed at jeopardising the security and safety of the citizens and resident decisively and relentlessly, in line with its constitutional responsibilities, the agency said. - TradeArabia News Service
