Democratic change in Bahrain does not serve US interests: Kissinger


Former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger emphasized that a democratic change in Bahrain did not serve the interests of his country, highlighting once again the western double standard towards the Arab revolt, the daily Die Welt reported Monday.

Speaking at a round-table discussion on global affairs in Berlin, Kissinger said it’s ‘not in our interests’ for Shiites to take over power in Bahrain since this could lead to ‘the breakup of Saudi Arabia.’

He conceded the upheaval in Bahrain and other Arab Persian Gulf countries was a ‘strategic and at the same time moral problem’ for America.
