The Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on all citizens in Lebanon to leave immediately, against the backdrop of the crisis between some Gulf countries and Lebanon.
The Bahraini Foreign Ministry said, in a statement, that “citizens present in the Lebanese Republic must leave immediately due to the tense situation there, which requires caution and caution,” noting its previous statements not to travel permanently to the Lebanese Republic, in order to prevent citizens from being exposed to any risks. In the interest of their safety.
Last Friday evening, the Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked the Lebanese ambassador to leave the Kingdom of Bahrain, noting that it “given the ambassador 48 hours to leave Bahrain,” according to the Bahrain News Agency (BNA).
The Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs clarified that “the decision to leave the ambassador of Lebanon from the territory of the Kingdom of Bahrain is against the background of the unacceptable and offensive statements and stances issued by Lebanese officials during the recent period.” The Bahraini Ministry affirmed that “this decision does not affect the Lebanese brothers residing in Bahrain.”
The Bahraini Foreign Ministry’s demand to leave the Lebanese ambassador comes after the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia issued a similar decision on Friday evening to summon its ambassador in Lebanon for consultations, and to give the Lebanese ambassador 48 hours to leave its lands, and the Saudi government decided, today, Friday, to stop all Lebanese imports to the Kingdom.
The crisis erupted after I published a television interview with George Kordahi, which was recorded with him before he assumed his post as Minister of Information in Lebanon, in which he considered that the Houthis “have been defending themselves in the face of an external aggression against Yemen for years.”
He continued that “there is no room for comparison between Hezbollah’s effort to liberate Lebanese land and the Houthis’ defense of themselves in the face of external aggression by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.” After that, the crisis worsened after Qardahi refused to apologize for his statements, and indicated that he would have apologized for it in the event that He made it after he was appointed to his official position as the Lebanese Minister of Information.
