MOSCOW, October 31. /TASS/. Multipolar world is necessary for achieving stability and security, Bahrain’s Minister of Information and the government’s speaker Samir Rajab said in an interview with TASS.
“Russia is a great country, which is playing an active role in the international arena, thus it is inacceptable to underestimate its influence in most international issues, including those in the Arab world.”
“Most international problems, including those related to fighting the Islamic State terrorist group, require balanced cooperation between all international players,” the minister said.
She highlighted the rapidly growing cultural cooperation with Russia, and focused on a programme for cultural cooperation for 2015-2017 and the joint action plan on cooperation in tourism for 2015-2016 between Russia and Bahrain, which were signed during the visit to Russia of Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
“We are planning tourism and cultural events in Moscow soon,” the minister said. “Presently, continues a campaign to build up the tourist flow between Russia and Bahrain.”
Bahrain “is a most popular tourism destination in the Persian Gulf area and it is ranked fifth among the countries good for living.”
The minister said her country had been welcoming for over a year now concerts of Russian opera and ballet groups.
“These events attract big audiences representing all Persian Gulf countries,” she said.
The minister also paid attention to cooperation between Russia and Bahrain in the military-technical sphere, pointing to the contract with Rosoboronexport, signed in summer 2014, on supplies of the Kornet-EM anti tank guided missile systems.
“We also have agreements on cooperation in training of the military,” she added.
“The agreements have been signed, and we are confident the cooperation will be developing,” the minister said. “Bahrain has good will to observe the agreements for improvement of relations between Bahrain and Russia.”
The minister said she had travelled to Moscow by the first direct flight of Bahrain’s national aviation carrier — Gulf Air.
“Thus, this visit may be called historic,” she said.
