The Media Office of Prime Minister Najib Mikati said in a statement this evening, in which it indicated that PM Mikati has been informed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants Abdullah Bu Habib regarding the contents of the letter addressed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Kingdom of Bahrain, which included an official complaint against the holding of a press conference in Beirut in which offenses were made against the Kingdom.
The PM has urgently referred the letter to the competent authorities, requesting an immediate investigation into what happened, preventing its recurrence, and taking appropriate measures in accordance with the laws in force.
The Prime Minister condemns any offense to the Kingdom of Bahrain, its leadership and people, and refuses to interfere in its internal affairs, and to offend it in any way.
Mikati also affirmed his refusal to use Lebanon as a base to offend and insult the Kingdom of Bahrain, just as he refuses to offend the brotherly Arab countries, especially the Gulf Cooperation Council countries.
PM Mikati is eager to preserve strong historical relations between Lebanon and the Kingdom of Bahrain, and stressed that what links them is deeper than mishap that does not express the opinion of the largest segment of the Lebanese people, who harbor all affinity, devotion and respect for Bahrain.”
