Iran translation sidestepped Syria: Bahrain
Manama: Bahrain says it has filed a formal protest with Iran over a broadcast translation that wrongly substituted Bahrain for Syria in a speech by Egypt`s President.
A statement by Bahrain`s government says Egypt`s President Mohammed Mursi referred to the Syrian rebels fighting an "oppressive" regime during a speech at a Tehran conference on Thursday.
Instead, Bahrain claims Iranian state TV replaced the word "Syria" with "Bahrain" in its Farsi translation.
Mursi`s speech was an embarrassment for Iran, which is a close ally of the Syrian regime. But Shi’ite power Iran has frequently criticised Bahrain`s authorities for crackdowns against mostly Shi’ite protesters seeking greater political rights.
Bahrain says the formal complaint was filed on Saturday with an Iranian diplomat.
