UK’s Royal Navy now has a permanent base at Bahreïn


The United Kingdom has just opened a permanent military base for the Royal Navy at Bahrain.

The opening ceremony was co-chaired by Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and the Crown Prince of Bahrain, Salman ben Hamad Al Khalifa.

The base will host 300 soldiers.

Up until now, only the military navies of the US, France and Turkey had a permanent base in the Persian Gulf.
