Bahrain will host a global maritime security conference to address the Iranian threat to navigation security in the Arabian Gulf.
The Kingdom’s Minister for Foreign Affairs announced the summit alongside the US special representative for Iran, Brian Hook.
Shaikh Khalid said the conference would probably take place this autumn and would follow up a February meeting in Warsaw. In Poland, 65 countries took part in the conference on Iran, including the UAE and other GCC and Middle East countries, and European representatives.
Mr. Hook said that the same countries would be asked to attend in Bahrain “but the invitations have not been sent out yet”. The maritime security conference will aim to reach a common understanding on addressing the challenge posed by Iran.
