Turkey willing for defense cooperation with Bahrain

Turkish Parliament Speaker Mehmet Ali Sahin was received by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa of Bahrain as part of his state visit to Manama.

King Hamad said at the audience that although President Abdullah Gul and he agreed to further improve the bilateral relations during his visit to Turkey, necessary mechanisms could not be established yet.

He expressed his country's desire to improve relations with Turkey especially in the area of defense industry.

King Hamad said that Turkey played a very important and influential role in the Middle East, and added that all Muslim countries attached importance to Turkey's accession to the EU.

Sahin, on his part, said that the Turkish party also aimed at improving its relations with Bahrain.

"The most important reason of our EU membership process is to further develop democracy and rule of law in our country. As our negotiations continue with EU, we cannot remain silent in the face of any attempt which is contrary to the human rights in the Islam world," he added.

Sahin is expected to return to Turkey later in the day.
