Security push tops GCC agenda
Riyadh, May 7, 2011
Economic and security co-operation will top the agenda of GCC leaders when they gather in Riyadh for a consultative meeting on Tuesday.
The Gulf leaders will also review regional and global developments, Secretary-General Dr Abdullatif Al Zayani said on Friday. Religious scholars have called on the leaders to seriously consider a fully-fledged union.
During yesterday’s prayers, they said Gulf nationals are yearning for unity and integration, enabling them to face dangers surrounding them on all sides together and delaying the declaration of GCC union is not in their favour.
They warned against threats posed by Iran and its ‘evil allies’ and said it is the right time for GCC union, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej.-TradeArabia News Service
