‘shameful’: Iran describes Bahrain normalizing ties with Israel


Iran said on Saturday that Bahrain’s move to normalize relations with Israel meant it would be complicit in Israeli policies which threatened regional security, Iranian state TV reported.

Iran’s foreign ministry said that it would hold the governments of Bahrain and its allies responsible for any insecurity caused by Israel in the Gulf region.

“Bahrain’s shameful move sacrifices the Palestinian cause and decades of struggle … at the expense of the U.S. election,” Iranian TV quoted a foreign ministry statement as saying.

Bahrain’s agreement, which was announced by U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday, was partly forged because of shared wariness of Iran.
