Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's Prime Minister Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa called to strengthen the interests of the Kingdom of Bahrain, in accordance with those of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), while dealing with the new US administration.
Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported the PM saying that "GCC-US relations, in general, and Bahraini-US ties, in particular, are deep-rooted, and that bilateral ties should be stronger and more stable."
The Prime Minister stressed that "with the new administration, led by President-elect Donald Trump, a new opportunity will be provided to bolster bilateral relations and build on them, given the fact that GCC countries, in general, and Bahrain, in particular, are allies and essential partners to the US in supporting security and stability across the region. Dealing with the new US administration should be based on this perspective to give priority to joint strategic interests."
