MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. Bahrain is in favour of political solution to the Syrian crisis and appreciates the efforts of Russia in the settlement of the Syrian crisis, Foreign Minister of Bahrain Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa said on Wednesday after talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
"We need to find a political solution for Syria, which would be supported by all parties and would be based on the Geneva-1 agreement [the conference on Syria]," he said. "We appreciate Russia’s unfailing for many years commitment to save Syria."
"We hope that all the interested players will pool their efforts," the foreign minister said. "To succeed, it is necessary to combine all efforts in the fight against terrorism, thus we would be able to solve the problem faced by all".
"Bahrain and Russia cooperate and agree on many issues," Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa said. "We hope that this cooperation will continue."
Bahrain seeks a political solution to the conflicts in the region of the Middle East and North Africa, Foreign Minister of Bahrain went on to say.
According to him, during the talks with Russia's Sergey Lavrov the parties gave special attention to the settlement of the situation in Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Syria.
"On Yemen we agreed that the dialogue that is currently underway in Geneva is needed," he said. "We wish every success to this process and have confirmed the need of a political solution that would return security and stability to this important for the region country. We also agreed that it is necessary to improve the humanitarian situation of the Yemeni people."
"We called for a peaceful resolution of the Libyan issue, emphasising the need for all the sides in Libya to find common ground," Al Khalifa said. "First of all, it is necessary to overcome the political polarisation and find a common political ground. On Iraq we agreed that it is necessary to support the antiterrorist fight in that country. We agreed that the success of the political process that would satisfy all the Iraqi sides is needed."
