Participation of the kingdom’s delegation in the trans-Atlantic function with 200 representatives of all components of the Bahraini society is a noble message of tolerance and co-existence from Bahrain to the whole world and an assertion of the kingdom’s renunciation of all forms of terrorism and violence.
“This is Bahrain” will be held in Washington and New York from September 24 to 29 and will feature a press conference and an exhibition to showcase Bahrain’s civilisational and democratic achievements. Participating parties are the Sunni and Jafari endowment, the Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churches, the Jewish, Sikh, Hindu and Buddhist temples, the Shura Council, ministries, the business community and non-government organizations.
