Iran: Bahrain Seeks to Normalize Ties with Us
Jamshidi made the remarks in a televised interview on Friday.

Referring to the normalization of ties agreement between Iran and Saudi Arabia in the government of late President Ebrahim Raisi, Jamshidi said that Hezbollah’s Secretary-General “Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was the first one to support it, and then the resistance brothers in Yemen supported it.”

Jamshidi said that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had also requested to normalize relations with Iran through the President of China, Xi Jinping.  

“Likewise, Bahrain has sent a message to Iran through Russia to normalize relations with Iran,” he state.

King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah said last week in China Bahrain was working to restore diplomatic relations with neighboring Iran.

“We believe in the principle of good neighborliness and non-interference in internal affairs," King Hamad said during a meeting with Chinese President Xi in Beijing, where he was on a state visit.

“We are working to restore diplomatic relations with Iran as a neighbor,” he added.

The king said his country welcomes China’s support for efforts aimed at promoting peace and stability in West Asia.

Iran and Saudi Arabia reached an agreement in the Chinese capital of Beijing in March 2023 to restore their diplomatic relations and re-open embassies and missions.
