Al-Wefaq quits Bahraini regime talks

The largest party and opposition bloc in Bahrain has quit the government-sponsored "national dialogue" currently underway in the country, Press TV reported.

On Sunday, the Al Wefaq National Islamic Society said it was leaving the talks pending formal confirmation from its leadership, AFP reported.

The party's representative at the dialogue, Khalil al-Marzuk said, "We have tried but without success to make it a serious dialogue."

Manama launched the talks on July 2 with the aim of introducing reforms in the Persian Gulf sheikdom's system of governance.

Al-Wefaq says since the negotiations started, the government has been trying to muffle the voice of the Bahraini people.
