Bahrain FM Rejects Kuwait Mediation in Political Crisis

After opposition agreed to a Kuwaiti mediation in the Bahraini political crisis, Bahrain's foreign minister said on Monday it was "completely untrue" that Kuwait would mediate.

The island kingdom's leading opposition group Wefaq said on Sunday it would accept an offer by Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah to mediate between Bahrain's al-Khalifa ruling family and opposition groups.

Earlier this month, Bahrain's rulers imposed martial law in the tiny Gulf Arab state and called in troops from fellow Gulf neighbors to quell pro-democracy demonstrations.

Bahrain Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Khalifa said on his Twitter page there were no plans for Kuwaiti-led dialogue. "Any talk about Kuwaiti mediation in Bahrain is completely untrue, there were previous efforts that were not answered, but these were ended by the act of National Safety (martial law)."

The Gulf Cooperation Council -- a regional political and economic bloc made up of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates -- had welcomed the mediation move on Sunday.

Kuwait daily al-Seyassah said on Sunday that a Wefaq delegation was to meet Kuwaiti politicians including Parliament Speaker Jassem al-Kharafi, citing unnamed political sources. Wefaq member Jasim Husaid said Ali al-Matrook, a Kuwaiti businessman, was one of the mediators.

So far, at least 24 people have been martyred, almost 100 have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured by the violent crackdown against peaceful protests in the country.
