News story: UK welcomes Bahrain’s renewed commitment to national dialogue

#1
Ministry of Defence said:
Commenting on an announcement this week that the Bahraini Government will be resuming national dialogue with political groups, Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt, said:
I welcome the announcement by the Government of Bahrain that the Minister of Justice will be meeting with all political societies in Bahrain to resume national dialogue. With the second anniversary of the 2011 unrest approaching, this is an important time for the country. The UK Government is committed to supporting all attempts at reconciliation in Bahrain to help bring about long-term stability for the country and its people. I encourage all sides to use this opportunity for genuine and inclusive dialogue to play a constructive role in resolving the political situation.

To be fair to the Bahrainis they are slaughtering them at a slower rate than most of their neighbours.
