Bahrain's Undersecretary for International Relations Abdullah Bin Ahmad Al Khalifa yesterday slammed the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement saying it has "fed violence and tensions throughout the region", Anadolu reported.

During a visit to Israel, Al Khalifa said Manama had hoped that the 2015 Iran nuclear deal would change Tehran's behaviour in the region, but instead it has brought about "more crises and violence".

Al Khalifa met with Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and is scheduled to meet with Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog, during his four-day visit.

This is the official's second visit to Israel since Manama and Tel Aviv signed a normalisation agreement in September 2020.

Israel strongly opposes the 2015 nuclear agreement.
