Iran Expresses Concern over Extension of Bahrain’s Opposition Leader Sheikh Ali Salman’s Detention

SHAFAQNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham expressed concern over the extension of Al-Wefaq Secretary-General Sheikh Ali Salman’s imprisonment, stressing that “these procedures will not help settling the problems in Bahrain.” During a press conference on Wednesday (April 22, 2015), Afkham further stressed that “the continuation of the security situation and police-state conditions in Bahrain will further complicate matters in the country.” “It is of utmost significance that the government sets aside the security approach in Bahrain and considering the dialogue and the people’s demands. It is preferable that the Bahraini government prepares the ground for this by taking confidence-building measures” Afkham suggested.
