The Prime Minister asserted that the government deals with the human rights issue from a comprehensive perspective and concept whose ceiling has no limits, explaining that the government is keen to make sure that the citizens enjoy their full rights to live decently in security, tranquility and stability, as well as to ensure that all services required for decent living are put in place for them.

Human rights values are well-protected in Bahrain, and this is denied only by the ungrateful who are unhappy with the progress boom witnessed by the kingdom in every field, he said, stressing Bahrain’s keenness to enhance cooperation with all international human rights institutions which seek a better human rights situation, and share with it its approach to develop the concept of human rights to make it a culture in society and government work.
