Bahrain’s Foreign Minister: We can provide support to Lebanon, but on one condition.

Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdul Latif Al-Zayani stressed, on Saturday, that Lebanon needs to prove that Hezbollah “can change its behavior to heal rifts with the Arab Gulf states.”

In a speech he delivered with the foreign ministers of Jordan, Iraq and Bahrain, within the “Manama Dialogue” conference in its seventeenth session, the Bahraini minister said that the Lebanese must change the behavior of Hezbollah.

Al-Zayani explained: “We can provide support to find solutions in the future, but after the Lebanese express their desire to change Hezbollah’s behavior…and change the behavior in Lebanon and in neighboring countries and Lebanon’s relationship with friendly and brotherly countries.”

The Bahraini foreign minister pointed out that “it is a great challenge for the Lebanese to review their policies with Hezbollah and try to find ways to implement decisions on the ground,” continuing: “We saw Hezbollah threatening the Saudis.”
