The Sheikh Ali Salman said in an interview with BBC channel, “we have distant hopes in the coming weeks through open communication between Crown Prince and Al Wefaq Organizations.” He pointed out that "in case these attempts failed, I would like to see Britain intervene to mediate." He requested that the British government should mediate between the opposition and the ruling family in Bahrain if the crisis continues in the country.
Sheikh Ali Salman said that Western countries such as Britain and the United States need to make more of an effort to prevent Bahrain from falling prey to extremism by the conflicting parties.
He added: "I think we need more from Britain and the United States to practically achieve the change toward democracy without any delay. This will benefit everyone, Bahrainis, Americans and the British”, stressing that "If Britain did not intervene, the alternative would be terrible.”
The Secretary-General added that Al Wefaq is a major Bahraini opposition organization, “We cannot have our militants on both sides working and destroying this country."
