We are concerned by the resignation of 18 members of the Bahraini parliament. We urge the Bahraini Government to create the environment in which a dialogue can take place and we call on all sides, including the political Opposition, to engage. It is only through collaboration, dialogue and a continuation of the political reform process that long-term stability can be achieved in Bahrain.
