(Paris) – Minister of Foreign Affairs Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa reiterated the Kingdom of Bahrain’s support for the French peace initiative and all efforts directed towards resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, enabling the Palestinian people to enjoy their legitimate rights and establish an independent Palestinian state based on the 4th of June 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, in line with relevant international resolutions and the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative as a just and all-inclusive framework.

This came in the minister’s speech during his participation in the peace conference held today in Paris. The minister expressed his hope that these peace efforts would lead to a peaceful two-state solution and put an end to the occupation of Arab lands.
