Manama, July 24 (BNA): Leading businessman Mohammed Abbas Biljeek denounced blatant Iranian interference in Bahrain’s sovereign internal affairs, stressing the need to stand united and rally behind the leadership of His Majesty the King, His Royal Highness the Premier and HRH the Crown Prince.
"The Iranian flagrant interference represents an unacceptable trespass on national sovereignty, which resulted in a spate of terror acts perpetrated by dormant cells in Bahrain", he said, adding that the Iranian meddlesome policies flout international norms and conventions.
Biljeek hailed the statement which was made by Interior Minister Lieutenant-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdulla Al-Khalifa, who stressed the importance of protecting society from "double loyalty", affirming allegiance to the wise leadership and separating between religions and sectarian-tainted ideologies.
He underlined the need to deter anyone who seeks to damage vital national economic interests, saying that there is no loyalty but to Bahrain.
"The recent Iranian blatant statements represented a provocation to the feelings of the loyal people of Bahrain", he said, urging all legal measures to protect Bahrain’s security and vital political and economic interests.
