Iran’s Majlis discusses possible restoration of Iranian sovereignty over Bahrain

Tuesday, 22 May 2012

Due to the increasingly serious statements made regarding the Bahrain-Saudi union by the ruling minority in that country, Iranian efforts in official bodies have begun to work to rescind the 1970 decision to separate Bahrain from Iran (following a referendum conducted in Bahrain after the end of British rule). The Majlis Committee on Foreign Affairs discussed this issue. Member of the Majlis Committee of National Security and Foreign Policy Mohammad Karim Abadi reported a proposal to conduct a referendum to rejoin Bahrain to Iran. According to Abadi, Bahrain currently has independence but if a referendum were to be conducted on this matter and Bahrain joins Saudi Arabia, the Bahraini people would prefer rejoining its primary homeland, Iran, and no where else.
