Foreign Ministers of the Cooperation Council of the Gulf Arab States, GCC, held the 118th session of the GCC Ministerial Council under the chairmanship of H.H Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister of the UAE. Secretary General of the Cooperation Council of the Gulf Arab States (GCC) Abdurrahman Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah took part in the meeting at the Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi.

In his opening speech, H.H Sheikh Abdullah said the agenda of the current meeting is full of vital issues that receive the interest of the leaders and peoples of the Gulf Arab states.

"The unusual circumstances around us require us to unify our efforts and convictions to promote GCC joint action towards a unity in terms of plans aimed at pushing stability and development in our society." "The current circumstances impose us all to promote cooperation and diligently seek to realise concrete achievements that are in the best interests of citizens and a better life for them," he added.

Sheikh Abdullah further noted the "judicious efforts made by the King of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, to contain demonstrations in Bahrain, place the interests of Bahrain above all other considerations and to lay the foundations for dialogue as a sophisticated and refined approach for addressing the issues of the state and the society with full transparency." "We closely monitor the recent developments in the Sultanate of Oman. We are confident in the ability of H.M Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said to prudently tackle these issues. We realise that our two countries and peoples have one and common destiny. We stress that we share the same security and the same future." The GCC ministerial meeting is being held as the brotherly Libyan people goes through crucial changes that require us to join efforts to deliver help to them. We appeal to the international community, and to the Security Council in particular, to shoulder its historical responsibility for protecting the Libyan people.."

Following the opening of the session, the GCC foreign ministers held a closed-door meeting to discuss cooperation among their states, joint action on political, economic, legal, humanitarian, environmental issues, intra-GCC strategic dialogue, international economic relations and the latest regional and international developments. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
