His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa lauded Bahrain’s human rights strides yesterday as he received the Human Rights Committee at the Council of Representatives, led by MP Abdulla Al Thawadi. “We are proud of our human rights situation.
We have attained many landmark achievements in the human rights field, and we - government and members of the Council of Representatives- have to preserve and build on our accomplishments in this regard. We share the same desire and exert similar efforts aimed at optimizing the gains of our country and people in all fields. The interests of our nation must always bring us together,” HRH Premier said.
“The representatives of the people represent our democracy of which we are proud. Our doors are always open for MPs, out of our belief that our common responsibility requires us to cooperate to achieve more for our nation and people,” HRH Premier added. “In the government, we have endeavored to harness all potentials to ensure that the Bahraini citizens enjoy the best quality services. We are keen to follow up on that personally through field visits, to measure the citizens’ satisfaction with them.
We do not rely on reports only. We believe that the provision of the needs and sufficient quality services that ensure a decent living for the citizens is essential to human rights protection, within our comprehensive vision of the human rights concept,” HRH Premier added.
