Bahrain condemns attack on Saudi diplomatic premises in Iran

Manama, Jan 4 (IANS) Bahrain on Sunday “strongly condemned” the attacks on the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran, urging Iran to abide by diplomatic measures and control the protesters.

Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry called the attack on the Saudi embassy “demagogic and barbarian actions” which is a “flagrant violation of international doctrines and norms.

It urged Iran to provide “required protection to diplomatic premises and staff, as well as adopting deterrent legal measures against rioters.”

Bahrain supports the Saudi measures towards consolidating peace and stability at both regional and international levels, the ministry reiterated.

Saudi Arabia executed 47 people on Saturday, including 45 Saudis, an Egyptian and another man from Chad. The incident is widely viewed as the largest contemporary mass execution for security infractions.

Bahrain’s Interior Ministry has already cautioned that legal steps will be taken against anyone attempting to take advantage of the recent verdicts in Saudi Arabia to magnify sectarian tension or incite violence.

The authority has already detained several rioters who illegally abused social media, and also summoned and counseled some parents to protect their children from further incitement.
