Dispute with Qatar won’t be long-term, Bahrain industry minister says
RIYADH, Oct 24 (Reuters) – Bahrain’s diplomatic dispute with Qatar isn’t likely to last for a long time, and will not change Bahrain’s economic outlook, the Bahraini minister of industry, commerce and tourism said on Tuesday.
“I think that the issue we have with Qatar is not something of a long-term nature — the dispute is going to get solved sooner or later,” Zayed al-Zayani told a business conference in Riyadh. He did not specify how the dispute might be settled. (Reporting by Marwa Rashad; Writing by Andrew Torchia; Editing by Catherine Evans)
