Parliament voices support to the UAE

Manama, The Council of Representatives strongly condemned and denounced the hostile statements made by Turkey’s Defence Minister, Hulusi Akar, against the brotherly United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The Foreign Affairs, Defence and National Security Committee voiced the stance and said that the Turkish official’s  rejected and provocative statements contravene diplomatic principles and norms, represent a direct threat to the security of an Arab state and violates the UN charter and the principle of countries’ sovereignty.

 

The committee hailed the UAE unwavering stances in defending the pan-Arab security as well as its pivotal and constructive international role and efforts to promote humanitarian work and global peace.

 

“Any threat to the security of the UAE is a threat to Arab countries and regional peace”, it said, reiterating Bahrain’s solidarity and support to the UAE against the Turkish interference in the internal affairs of the Arab countries, in violation of the UN and OIC charters.

 

It called upon Arab parliaments to voicate support to the UAE, condemn the Turkish minister’s statements and the Turkish inference in the internal affairs of Arab countries.

 

The committee stressed the importance of building interstate relations through the language of sound diplomacy, rather than threats and blatant interference so as to maintain regional security and stability.
