shiitenews bahrain ask to help solve crisisBahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid ibn Ahmad Al Khalifah has asked for Iran to help the country resolve the current crisis.

He made the remarks during a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on the sidelines of the 66th annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Monday, IRNA reported. 

Salehi raised concerns about recent developments in Bahrain, saying that the crisis can only be solved through dialogue between the Bahraini authorities and the people. 

Sheikh Khalid said a fact-finding committee, led by renowned human rights expert Mahmoud Cherif Bassiouni, is investigating the events and will publish its report by the end of October. 

The Bahraini foreign minister also stated that Manama will abide by the committee's findings. 

Bahrainis have been holding anti-government demonstrations since mid-February, demanding an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's 40-year rule. 

Scores of people have been killed and hundreds of others have been arrested in a brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters in Bahrain, which is the base of the US Navy's Fifth Fleet in the Persian Gulf. 

Salehi also held separate meetings with the Sudanese, Syrian, and Bulgarian foreign ministers on Monday. 

Salehi and his counterparts discussed the latest international and regional developments and called for the expansion of bilateral relations.
