UK's Cameron backs Bahrain F1
London, April 21, 2012
British Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday defended Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix, saying that "Bahrain is not Syria".
"We should be clear: Bahrain is not Syria; there is a process of reform underway," he said in a statement published in newspapers and posted on British websites.
Reacting to calls of the Shadow Government and the Labour leader for the race to be called off, Cameron reaffirmed his government's support for Bahrain's reform process.
"This government backs that reform and wants to help promote that reform," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
