MP Dr. Maryam Al-Dhaen affirmed that Bahrain stands as a unique model of tolerance, both domestically, as enshrined by the Constitution and National Action Charter, and internationally, in its pursuit of peace and tolerance.
She emphasised Bahrain’s commitment to human rights treaties and international agreements. MP Al-Dhaen said the vision of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa has contributed significantly to bolstering Bahrain’s global position through continuous efforts to promote peace and tolerance, integral to comprehensive development.
