Bahrain’s Objectives behind Normalization of Relations with Syria

Strategic Council Online – Interview: An expert on the Middle East affairs, commenting on the targets of the recent measure of the King of Bahrain in appointing the ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Syria after 10 years said that Manama pursues two main targets in such measure; first, the use of economic benefits in Syria, that is to say participation in the reconstruction of the country, and second, with regard to the profound transformation in the new regional equations, including the Tehran-Riyadh talks and the reduction of US presence in the region, Bahrain does not want to lag behind such equations. In addition, alleviating pressure on the public opinion, due to the normalization of relations with the Zionist regime, can also be one of the objectives of the Zionist regime behind such action.
