One of Bahrain’s top politicians has warned that the US row surrounding DP World’s takeover of P&O has taken on a worryingly racist tenor.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Essa Al-Khalifa, chief executive of the Bahrain Economic Development Board, said that the events surrounding the Dubai company’s £3.9bn takeover of the UK ports group had also caused great consternation in the Gulf.

The governor of the UAE central bank has sharply criticised US Congress opposition to the acquisition of six US ports by Dubai Ports World (DPW) and called for a reassessment of US trade links.

“The American side that opposed the deal mixed economic and investment matters with issues of security and politics and this is the wrong approach and it will hurt free trade and international investment,” Sultan bin Nasser al-Suwaidi said in remarks published Monday in several UAE-based Arabic papers.
