Bahrain welcomed on Saturday a statement made by US President Donald Trump “on confronting Qatar’s support for extremism and the immediate need to stop its funding and support for terrorism.”

A statement published on the Bahrain News Agency said Trump’s “stance is part of the relentless US efforts to continue combating all forms of terrorism and ensuring international solidarity on this dangerous phenomenon.”

The Kingdom of Bahrain stressed it was important for Qatar to commit into rectifying its policies and “to engage in a transparent manner in counter-terrorism efforts, therefore allowing the countries of the region to confront all terrorist entities and eliminate all those who support them and try to destabilize the states and peoples of the region.”

Trump said on Friday that Qatar “has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level.”

“They have to end that funding and its extremist ideology in terms of funding,” he added.
