The Bahraini government has suspended reconciliation talks with opposition groups aimed at ending nearly three years of political deadlock in the U.S.-allied country, raising the prospect of further instability.The spokesman for the talks stressed that despite the breakdown, the channels for communication remained open, but with the opposition having boycotted the talks for months, over the arrest of some of their leaders, prospects looked bleak.State news agency BNA said late on Wednesday that government representatives made the decision to suspend the talks after opposition members failed to show up for a meeting in Manama.Isa Abdul Rahman, spokesman for the dialogue talks, said the decision did not mean an end to the dialogue.Marzouq, who has since been released on bail, blamed the government for the collapse and said the opposition was still committed to dialogue.
