The 40th anniversary of the 1971 Treaty of Friendship will be an important milestone in our bilateral relationship with Bahrain. We look forward to celebrating the anniversary together, both in the UK and in Bahrain. In the context of the Gulf Initiative and the launch of the UK-Bahrain Joint Steering Committee, our Ministers will be keen to contribute to celebrations.
