Our position on Bahrain and the Commons Inquiry... Bahrain: We are aware that Bahrain has expressed an interest in Typhoon but that these discussions are at a very early stage. As appropriate, BAE Systems supports the UK Government in these discussions. As with all export opportunities, these requirements will be addressed in strict accordance with UK government export licensing policy. Commons Inquiry: We agreed with the Committee to give evidence informally, in order to be as helpful as possible, without compromising diplomatic and commercial sensitivities. The discussion drew on Sir Sherard's wide experience of Saudi matters, and his knowledge of the region, and also touched on BAE Systems position in the Kingdom.
