Instability 'may hit Arab growth'

Manama, May 24, 2011

Bahrain has warned against the impact of political instability on development in the Arab world.

'The insecurity and instability sweeping some Arab countries may fuel tensions and derail the march of development,' His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa said.

HRH the Premier made the comments as he received yesterday senior officials. He urged all parties to assume religious and patriotic responsibilities to protect the nation, avert sedition and foil any conspiracies seeking to subvert national interests.

'The deplorable incidents which gripped Bahrain were a wake-up call to be on full alert and draw the hard lessons,' he said.

'What we went through can't simply be forgotten or ignored as though nothing happened,' he added, saying that loyal citizens would always stand united and alert at the forefront to abort any conspiracies.

He urged all energies to be mustered so as to confront the defamatory campaigns orchestrated against Bahrain.

He cautioned against black allegations, media deception and the deliberate distortion of the truth to sully the image of Bahrain and influence international opinion.

'Bahrain abounds in honest writers who are well capable of debunking fallacies, laying allegations bare and revealing the truth and justice,' he said.

HRH the Premier defended Bahrain's landmark achievements and development strides.

'Any fair-minded and unbiased person would acknowledge Bahrain's reform and development milestones,' he said.

He accused those adamant on disparaging and stigmatising Bahrain's image in the media as disavowing the mantle of national responsibility.-TradeArabia News Service
