Bahrain Mirror: France said Monday (December 12, 2016) that it "notes with concern the upholding of the nine-year prison sentence for al-Wefaq's secretary-general, Sheikh Ali Salman, whose movement - the main opposition party - was dissolved in July by the courts."

On this level, the French statement stressed, "It is vital to create conditions that foster the resumption of an expanded political dialogue, which is essential to national reconciliation.
