Asked if the Prime Minister had a view on events in Bahrain, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that there would be an update on this from the Foreign Secretary later. We were deeply concerned by the events in Bahrain last night and by the level of violence. We would urge all sides to avoid violence and urge the police to exercise restraint. It was essential that Bahrain took further steps to reform that met the aspirations of its people for greater political and social freedoms. All countries in this region were different, but Bahrain had made important political reforms alongside its growing economic success and we welcomed those steps. For example, it had a parliament, and there was an opposition.
