Qatar has welcomed the decision of Bahrain to allow the latter's citizens, who were transiting through Doha from Iran, to return home.
Qatar wished that Bahrain had accepted its offer to fly the Bahraini citizens home on a private charter flight, instead of prolonging their waiting time, the Government Communications Office said in a statement .
"Qatar stands ready to play its humanitarian role during this global crisis. It is unfortunate that Bahrain has launched allegations , false accusations and politicised the humanitarian situation of its citizens attempting to transit home.
"Allowing them to return home , as requested by Qatar to the relevant authorities in Bahrain , is a step in the right direction," the statement noted .
"As the health and safety of these Bahraini citizens is paramount at this time , the Ministry of Public Health in Qatar will communicate with its counterpart in Bahrain , to inform them of the results of the coronavirus tests that have been conducted," the Government Communications Office said.
Qatar wishes the Bahraini citizens good health and safety, the statement added.
