Egypt's Sisi mourns death of Bahraini PM Khalifa bin Salman - Politics - Egypt

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has sent his condolences to Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa on the passing away of the country's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, on Wednesday.

The king has ordered a week of national mourning and for flags to be flown at half-mast.

Bahrain's PM Prince Khalifa Bin Salman al Khalifa attends a meeting during the Asia Cooperation Dialogue summit at the Foreign Ministry in Bangkok, Thailand.

More details to follow.

In November 2019, Prince Khalifa traveled to Germany for undisclosed medical treatments, but returned to Bahrain several months later.

Prince Khalifa, a staunch ally of the United States and Saudi Arabia, was often seen as a controversial figure. "He represented an old social understanding rooted in royal privilege and expressed through personal patronage".

"The death of Prime Minister Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman is a big blow to the world especially in the Middle East where he was a celebrated peace champion and an icon of tranquility".

A referendum to determine the country's future resulted in an overwhelming vote in favour of independence under the rule of the Sunni Al-Khalifa dynasty, despite the large Shiite population, the size of which is disputed by the government to this day.

The prime minister-designate, 51, belongs to a new generation of Gulf leaders who were educated in the West and tried to build bridges with the opposition.

Sheikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, since his appointment as Crown Prince in 1999, has become known as the ruling family's leading proponent of reform, although most meaningful changes were consistently blocked by family hardliners such as Sheikh Khalifa.

At one point during the height of March 2011 protests, thousands of demonstrators attacked the office of Prime Minister and officers met inside demanding the resignation of sheik Khalifa.
