DUBA - Bahrain's foreign minister said on Friday the Gulf Arab state was not trying to dissolve the biggest opposition party, in comments that came after the United States criticised legal action against the group, Wefaq.

Bahrain's Ministry of Justice and Islamic Affairs said on Thursday it would dissolve Wefaq and another group in Bahrain's toughest crackdown yet on Shi'ite dissidents who led an uprising to demand more say in the Sunni-ruled monarchy.
