His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa stressed the importance of further strengthening and widening the horizons of cooperation during talks yesterday with US Ambassador Steven Bondy at Gudaibiya Palace.

The well-established ties, part of the strategic partnership between the two friendly countries, are paving the way for development at all levels, said the Crown Prince and Prime Minister highlighting the strength of Bahrain-US strategic relations.

His Royal Highness also emphasised the importance of further strengthening efforts to achieve the Kingdom’s comprehensive development goals, led by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. Talks also focused on Bahrain’s works in trafficking in persons, in light of Bahrain maintaining its Tier 1 status for the fifth consecutive year in the US Department of State report on trafficking in persons.

The meeting also discussed the outcomes of the Jeddah Security and Development Summit and the latest regional and international developments. Thanking HRH Prince Salman, Steven Bondy said the US is keen to expand its ties with the Kingdom in various areas. The Minister of Finance and National Economy, Shaikh Salman bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, and the Minister of Cabinet Affairs, Hamad bin Faisal Al Malki, attended the meeting.
