Opposition to enter dialogue
2 June, 2012 – UPI

MANAMA, Bahrain, June 2 (UPI) — Bahrain has offered to resume negotiations with the opposition al-Wefaq party in a bid to solve the ongoing political crisis, an official said.

Information Minister Samira Rajab said Bahrain leaders are trying to find some common ground with al-Wefaq “despite insurmountable obstacles and unfeasible conditions” in a bid to pave the way for dialogue, CNN Arabic reported Saturday.

Akhbar al-Khaleej newspaper said state officials and leading members of al-Wefaq have already met “unofficially” to iron out the details of the dialogue and discuss prerequisites.

Al-Wefaq, which represents Bahrain’s Shiite community, pulled out of the national dialogue in 2011 after violence exploded in the kingdom.
