Bahrain denies it has plans to snap Qatar ties
MANAMA - Bahrain denied yesterday a news item circulated through social media about its plan to snap relations with Qatar over a negative programme aired by Al Jazeera documentary channel.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa said through his twitter account that the news item is baseless and the deep relations between the two countries couldn’t be affected by a TV programme.
Shaikh Ahmed said that Bahrainis who are trying to harm Qatar and its citizens are actually harming their own families.
Meanwhile, the minister said that the documentary, which was entitled ‘Shouting in the Dark’ and aired on Thursday, ignored the views of most Bahrainis.
He highlighted that the programme was one-sided and some people in Qatar don’t want the best for Bahrain.
The documentary also angered many lawmakers who are planning to send a joint objection letter to the Qatari Ambassador to Bahrain urging his country to deal with the biased approach of the Qatar-based channel.
