Remarks With Bahraini Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa Before Their Bilateral Meeting
Secretary of State
FOREIGN MINISTER AL-KHALIFA: Thank you very much, Madam Secretary. I’m here to meet with my colleague, my friend, Madam Secretary. And I’m here – I’ve met with so many friends all over Washington and the government, on the Hill, both sides. Bahrain has many friends who are interested in what’s happening in Bahrain. A lot of them have concerns of what’s happening in Bahrain. It’s incumbent upon us to come and explain to our friends what’s going on and what we intend to do. And I’m confident that our talks today will also be of that direction. Thank you very much.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you so much.
FOREIGN MINISTER AL-KHALIFA: Thank you.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Again, welcome.
