Saudi Arabia: As reported in EarthTimes
Manama - The foreign ministers of Bahrain and Egypt Tuesday reaffirmed their support for Saudi Arabia as it continues to battle Yemeni rebels on its southern border. "The security and stability of Saudi Arabia is a vital matter for both our countries and we stand side by side with our brothers in Saudi Arabia as they defend their borders and citizens," Bahrain Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed al Khalifa said at a joint press conference with his Egyptian counterpart Ahmed Aboul Gheit in.
Both ministers expressed concern over Iran's nuclear programme and Aboul Gheit warned Tehran that the secrecy surrounding the programme represented a provocation to the international community.
He said that that by not adhering to the terms of the Non- Proliferation Treaty, Iran risked facing military action by the West or Israel, something that would affect not just Iran but also all the people in the region.
