Bahrain will not allow the import of Israeli goods produced in settlements in the West Bank, state news agency BNA reported, disavowing comments made by the Gulf state's trade minister earlier this week.
Bahrain's Industry, Commerce and Tourism Minister Zayed bin Rashid al-Zayani had voiced openness to settlement imports, adding that Manama would make no distinction between products produced in Israel or in the West Bank and Golan Heights.
"The minister's statement was misinterpreted and that the ministry is committed to the Bahraini government's unwavering stance regarding adherence to the resolutions of the United Nations," BNA said late on Friday, quoting an official source from the ministry of industry, commerce and tourism.
