(MENAFN- Saudi Press Agency)
Manama, Shawwal 29, 1439, Jul 13, 2018, SPA -- The Ministry of Information Affairs in the Kingdom of Bahrain has announced full support of the Saudi Media Ministry's statement that confirms a categorical rejection of Qatar's irresponsible and false allegations of the signal piracy made by the so-called "beoutQ", which linked up the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with beoutQ.
The ministry reiterated Bahrain's rejection of signal piracy or illegal broadcasting which is in violation of laws and regulations of states and commended the Saudi steps to combat piracy and protect intellectual property rights.
The Bahraini Ministry of Information Affairs also rejected the allegation of political intention connected to the anti-terror Arab quartet-Qatar dispute.
It asserted its understanding of the reasons behind the Saudi ban on the beIN Sport, a subsidiary of Al Jazeera Media Network, due to the involvement of the Qatari channels in supporting terrorism and extremism, as well as promoting the discourse of sedition, hatred and extremism in the region.
Moreover, the Bahraini Ministry expressed condemnation of the propaganda campaign against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the deviation of the beIN Sport from its discourse during the broadcasting of the 2018 World Cup finals with the aim of defaming the reputation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries.
The Ministry called for a review of the legal status of beIN Sport channels in all countries in light of the latest developments that included the repeated involvement of Qatari sports channels in politics during the 2018 World Cup finals, and stressed its backing of the Saudi measures taken in this regard.
