Bahrain (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - March 26, 2012)
What is your assessment of the latest report issued to the King of Bahrain by the committee assigned to follow up the implementation of Bassiouni’s recommendations?
We’ve taken note of the submission of this report; we noted with interest the efforts of the Bahraini government to respond to the Bassiouni Commission’s recommendations.
We hope that the announced measures will now be implemented within the framework of an inclusive process of reform and dialogue which will bring together all components of Bahraini society and political life.
We urge all parties to take advantage of the opportunities for dialogue afforded to them, in order to find a solution that will respond to the aspirations of all Bahraini citizens and to ease tensions over the long term.
